Power Outages in Bishkek
We have been having frequent power outages in Bishkek recently. Yesterday, the electricity at work went out. This morning the electricity was out in my flat. It still had not come back on by the time I left for work. I noticed that all of the electricity along Abdrakhmanov (Sovetskaia) between Gorky and Chui was out. I am not sure how much further the outage extended. Fortunately, I have lived in Sacramento and Arivaca so I am used to living for prolonged periods without electricity. Other people may find it more difficult to adapt to the the lack of light and other electrical services.
