There is limited, meaning no, electricity in rural areas. What can you do all night?
The nomad life is about as low tech as you can get except when it comes to this area. Each home has a solar panel and a big satellite dish provided by the government. It is hard to believe, but everyone has at least 4 channels.
I asked the guide what TV shows they really like here and she said, "American Idol is huge! Everyone loves Simon Cowell".
