Power Outages

Yesterday we experienced our second power outage. My first experience was last Tuesday. The power went out at around 9:00am. I went into town that morning with Vefi and Natasha to do some shopping for Turkish coffee supplies. When I got back the power was still out but went back on shortly after lunch. The power went out again yesterday, this time in the late afternoon. The sun set so Dan went out in search of some candles and matches. Shortly after the power turned back on. Now I understand why they put a gas stove in! Not sure how often we will get these outages but we did read that the most useful item to bring is a torch(aka flashlight) as the electricity can go off at any time without warning. Guess we know what our next purchase should be!

In September 2010, Dan and I received working visas for the United Kingdom. We sold our condo, quit our jobs and packed our bags to move to London. This blog (though a few months late) is designed to update our friends and family back home about where we are and what we are up to.
