The man who cooks with the sun
Khaled Bashir, 50, lives in Deir al Balah in the Gaza Strip. Like all Gaza residents, he too has to contend with rationed electricity supply. Now, on a “good” day, electricity is on for eight hours and off for another eight. Like all Gaza residents, he lives with the constant rattle of generators and the never-ending shortage of fuel. He too is well acquainted with the long lines with which one has to contend to buy a tank of cooking gas. Bashir endures all of this, but a little less than others. He has an oven that requires no electricity and no gas.
