Winter Time On

Summer Time is gone. Yesterday Mauritius moved back one hour at 0200. For most people, there was no real difference, but for some, it had some complications. They will have to adapt to one hour sunshine less in the afternoon when they return from work.

This system was adapted to the Mauritian context but I do not think that it had the desired results. It was supposed to make everybody consume less electricity, but the power consumption more or less stayed the same.

Reports will be written on the positive aspects, but I do not think it will get rave reviews.
I do not think that this experience will be renewed again here.
