As we bounced along the washed-out road, we noticed that a large number of people in the neighborhoods were gathered around a few TV sets scattered in houses here and there.
Our friend told us that before electricity had been brought to their barrio a few years earlier, people would gather in a similar way. The only difference was that friends and neighbors would sit around and talk to each other. TV had changed that. Now, electricity had brought blessings and curses: blessings such as electric appliances for those who could afford them and curses such as TV.
How is your home in comparison? Are your evenings filled with conversation? Or does David Letterman, Bear Grylls, or the SportsCenter guys have the last word of the night?
