Returned from Castel-Pere late this morning and found these two young fellas here. They are scouts and were exchanging the light bulbs on the left for those on the right. We gave them all our incandescents and they gave us new compact fluorescent ones. They said that Cuba had donated the CF bulbs as they are more energy efficient. This is true but they do not last long here. We've had some and they cannot deal with the surges that are constant with EdH (Electricite d'Haiti). A good idea which we support though it'd be better if the power surges could be controlled.
