Wisdom from the Road #28

On darkness
It isn't so bad.
You can...
See the stars better.
Have some fireflies for company.
See glowing plankton in the sea.
Go skinny dipping in the beach.

But when you're out camping on an island that has no electricity or on a mountain away from civilization or when you're visiting a town that's known to have intermittent power, it can be a pain. Pain on the toe if you stub your toe while stumbling around in the woods looking for a place to take a dump. Pain on the leg if you drop into a canal while looking (if you can see anything at all) for your hostel. Pain on the face if you crawl into the wrong tent and your new tent mate punches you.
