That is not true on second thought. Had the same problem in Ranong, Thailand. There is a light in my room. Presently this morning there is no electricity. But last night when I arranged to rent this room there was a light. I have a screw in type socket that enables me to plug in my computer. The problem in this room is that the light bulb is not a screw in type. It is a double prong type like some Christmas tree lights, or a light in a 12 volt car system. You push in and twist. I may have to tap directly into the wires.

So I have moved from the high rent district to the low rent. More of a backpacker feel and less of a tourist feel. A couple of Israel girls are my neighbors, so life is good.
