Photographer's Note

I got some comments about the risks of fire from both Malgorzata(Emka) and Aleksander(Graal)in my previous post which inspired me to upload this shot. And there is a risk of a catastrophe if there is a fire in the narrow streets here, as i see it. Many wooden houses and limited space for the fire department.
-----------------------------------------------------
An interesting thing about the fire department: The firefighters are called "bomberos" and are volunteers. I saw one fire truck with the text "Feuerwehr" (Firebrigade) which comes from that many fire department companies in Chile were founded by resident members of European colonies such as the Germans, British, Spanish, French and Italians
