We do not take electricity or internet connectivity for granted here - maybe more accurately we do, and then are frequently disappointed. As we were about to start our first cataract case, a loud explosion in the distance was the regional transformer on the electrical grid. Undaunted, we transferred over to the generator systems...yes plural...one for 220V power and the other for 110V power. Just before starting the case, regular power was restored! Similar, but more fickle, is the internet access - very spotty most of the time, limited bandwidth and frequent intermittent outages.
