I’m writing this with a massive smile because the photo above was taken yesterday. A brand new Catepillar generator just arrived on Little Corn Island in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Nicaragua. Rumor is that in the next few weeks Little Corn will have power 24 hours a day and you have no idea how happy I am to hear that. You all take power for granted and so did I until you flip that switch in the mid-day heat and have no fan to cool your jets or find yourself sitting with piles of dead devices.
I’ve been on Big Corn for the last while and this photo was taken from the Little Corn Island FB page; props to whoever took it and assuming John from Traquilo Cafe. I’m curious how they are going to move it; well I know how just it will be quite the feat. Probably put it on rollers and a whole town full of man power. This is a huge advancement and I sincerely hope that this fixes the problem. Power outages happen from time to time but when it’s not working more than it is; your devices die and you better hope you have a room with a breeze.
My Caribbean digital dream is coming closer…
That’s it for now, here another few weeks then off to Malta but more on that later…
Update: Power has been on since they plugged in the new generator; happy days!
Update II: The power has been regular from ~1-2PM – ~5-6AM.
