Good luck, bad luck

“You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.” 

For the staff of the Munich-Freimann fire brigade this quote by Cormac McCarthy perhaps brought small comfort, when they found their station together with the fire engines going up in flames.


But at least they could meet fire fighters from other places nearby, who were quickly responding to their request for help.

Das Charakteristische für Europa sei die Verschiedenheit.
