Here's another thing I don't get - and call it "complaining" or call it my unique perception on life: Why does the municipality (baladia) take the time to chop down trees in the country when bozos like these have set up illegal structures - IN FIRE LANES? Hey, let's all endanger the lives of our co-workers and customers (and ultimately, firemen)... It is in between 2 clothing stores. You know - as in FLAMABLE materials....
Please note the fire hydrant to the bottom right of the photo.
You can't see it in the photo (as they are to the rear of the building) but there are steel bars on the windows. NO ESCAPE.
Where is the fire department?
