Manabi Ecuador – Feb. 2013
One often encounters unique ideas and solutions when living off the grid. Since I ‘don’t know nothin’ about electricity, I stand way back while others do their work!
This past week when my friends prepared for a night-time harvest of the nearby shrimp pond, I checked on the progress every hour or so. (The gates to the discharge pipes are opened during low tide, and about twelve hours later, the harvest begins!)
How they string their work lights provided quite a surprise for me! Who needs expensive electricians when one can improvise with little?
The system worked well, don’t you think? More on the harvest soon!
