Corner view Málaga: Water

Every time you hear a fire engine around here you get quite worried. Andalucía is so dry most of the year that the risk of wild fires is very high.

Every year, one of the last days in June - right before the school holidays start - two fire engines rush down our street with their sirens on. They get in to the school yard and all the kids are let out and ... well, you can see on the photo that they have quite a fun time.

For more water corner views head over to Spain Daily's stand-in host Dana.
