In Baghdad, elusive electricity is rare delight
When I was growing up in India in the 1970s, we would have days when we would not have electricity for a couple hours. But for the most part, it wasn't that huge an inconvenience. Just a couple hours out of the day.
On the other hand, in Iraq 30 years later, they are delighted to have electricity for 2 hours a day.
In a desert where daytime temperatures get over 120 degrees during the day. They get 2 hours of electricity.
