Master Electricians

We don’t see this very often in Antigua, but when we travel to smaller cities in rural areas it’s common to see complicated connections on many of the power distribution poles. This weekend we took a boat to several of the cities on the shores of Lago de Atitlan. Each of the cities we visited had power poles with more connections than you can imagine. I only snapped a few photos, but I think you can see what I mean. Imagine how much work it is to add/remove/change a connection on one of those. You have to not only know what you’re doing, but you have to be able to move carefully so you don’t get crispy.

    Cool photos! I assume they are labelled; that would be a nightmare! Wonder if the large coils are for the next guy who wants power.
