Pylon of the Month - April 2010

IMG_3043
Where did March go?  I was so busy that I forgot to post a pylon and so decided to skip straight to April.  Yet again, this month's pylon was supplied by a fan of the blog and yet again it comes from an exotic location.  The Masai Plain in Tanzania no less. which seems to be part of the famous Serengeti National Park.  The supply of electricity in Tanzania seems to be quite an issue at the moment as it seeks to industrialize.  Hydroelectricity contributes 71% of the country's electricity according to this source, with dams on the Great Ruaha River being the most important source.  For any pylon fans thinking of visiting Tanzania, electricity is supplied at 230V/50Hz and an Indian or UK plug should work.
