When you live in a third world country, things like power and water (which we all expect to have at all times) become even more appreciated. It’s now 3:00 in the afternoon and we finally have power again! This is not only an inconvenience but it also affects the food in the refrigerator and for us, showers! We have electric shower heads which are also called widow makers since the power here is 220 volts rather than 110. Everyone knows that mixing water and electricity is a no no but that’s the only way to be assured of hot water here in Peru. You learn to be careful and not touch it!
