Re: spot the danger - Brazil style

The only thing l can spot Realspeed, is the 3pin plug situated
right next to the water supply?
Looks very dodgy to me, perhaps we are just behind the times?

You need hot wax for a Brazilian.

Hope it went well.

Re: spot the danger - Brazil style

No training as we have like apprenticeships but that is not all. the bungalow we stay in has 240v AND 110v supply, believe it or not, crazy. Roof tilers didn't worry if the roof leaked either
It is a case of jobs from father to son and no scheme to teach them.

When we were there the Brazilian government decided to start using a standard plug throughout the country and all new electrical appliances had to be fitted with plugs to fit.

Great idea? YES, erm not actually, they didn't sell the new plugs separately to fit onto existing electrical equipment.

OOPS

Also Realspeed, the device suspended in the ring and plugged into
the socket looks as if it has been designed to to heat the cold
water supply directly off the cold tap? Perhaps itbshould have been
wired directly into the mains without the intervention of a three
pin plug?
Otherwise the bungalows and surrounds look very nice l think?

Re: spot the danger - Brazil style

yes it is a type of heater on that tap. makes you shudder thinking about it. The bungalow is lovely and dead posh area. Few doors down have their own helipad in the garden.



Bungalow from the private road. You could build the same again in the grounds on the right hand side of the premises

Looking from the picture above the other way



name the bird spotted for bungalow (video)
