It's official. I have just learned through twitter and facebook that the blackout is not only in São Paulo, but in 70% of the country. My hometown of Porto Alegre miraculously has electricity, so my mom has been giving me news updates as well. My guess is this is going to last for a while, so I should be saving the battery on my blackberry as opposed to writing this, but I just couldn't resist. Sort of reminds me of that New York blackout years ago, only this time I am not at the Mercer having free drinks, and this is happening throughout the entire freaking country.
If you hear more about the blackout, post it on the comments section please. Now am off to eating a pint of icecream which will otherwise melt in the fridge.
