      Amazing!

      I can remeber seeing a solar panel in a village we stayed in in Northern Thailand and wondering if the developers of Solar power knew how much influence it would have in changing these ancient ways of life. I know you can't deny remote people the right to access mod cons but at the same time it seems a shame that you can watch Oprah in Mongolia.

      Enjoy!
