Hue on Oct 25th — People Power Outage

Woke up at 6:30am and around 7am the electricity suddenly was turned off.

Mai could make breakfast for me (and something else for her and Megan) without electricity because we have a propane gas stove in the kitchen. Of course, there were no lights and the refrigerator didn’t work, but the Vietnamese are used to such unannounced power outages.

After breakfast, I jumped on the bicycle and took a quick jaunt and found out that about 1/2 mile away the electric company was pruning the trees around the electric wires. They had a high lift crane carrying a guy who was pruning the branches.
