power black outs are quite a bit on the card in rural areas. torch comes handy, radios running on battery and we had kerosene lamps. actually quite romantic stuff, sure we had to be a bit carefull. I remember one nite, walking home from the neigbours house, my kerosene lamp in the hand....yes I had forgotten my torch, so I had to take the neigbours lamp, and sure I stumbled. the lamp gone and all was realy pitch black. yes I made it home, very slowly
