Sunset, Mioko-Palpal, Duke of York Islands

P8215245 DOY sunset, Mioko-Palpal.A

The sunset is beautiful as low storm clouds sweep across the sky at the start of the wet season. But there is the downside -- by and large, when the sun goes down the light goes out in the Duke of York Islands. There is no electricity service. A few home owners have solar power, a few run petrol-fueled gen-sets for a few hours, and the rest make do with kerosene lamps, battery-powered lights and torches, and the cooking fire. P8215245
