This was a helluva thing to wake up to around 4:30am this morning. The garbage truck, late on its rounds (they pass by every single day), comes the wrong way up a one-way street, tries to turn onto Vicente Guerrero in front of Hotel Suzy and hits the almendra tree on the corner, breaking the tree so that if the truck is moved the tree comes crashing down. So apart from the traffic congestion it caused of impatient drunks, many with stereos at full volume, the motor of the truck left running, the commotion of the workers (one telling another to grab the "black bag" from the truck before the cops arrive!), and the din of confusion as Keystone Kops and the fire department finally arrive after I call 066 (our 911) and try to sort out the mess, we got treated to the lovely sound of a chain saw as the fire department cut up the tree in order to remove the tree from the truck, or the truck from the tree. Whatever. And icing on the cake was having the whole area of course reeking with the smell of garbage and the truck's exhaust fumes.
Just another lovely day in paradise! :~/
