    I have a picture in my Guatemala photo album of Xela’s Zona 1 fire station, with all the old fire engines and pump trucks from different years facing out into the street.

    Is the 122 emergency number like 911 in the U.S., meaning that wherever you are in Guatemala you can dial 122 for an emergency? Or is it only for the Xela area?

    Begonia, dialing 122 is a little like 911, because they’ll put you through to the local fire department, but it’s usually more efficient to call directly. I have them on speed dial.
    Gorgeous dog! Though he looks more like some kind of mascot, rather than a dog that would assist in some kind of rescue.
    Firemen here hardly ever are called to put out fires. Most of the time they’re busy taking accident victims to the hospital or rescuing people from ravines.
