ABC Wednesday - F


ABC Wednesday - F

Today we have a rather old fashioned fire engine - I guess it will still do the job though.

You'll find it at the Rila Monastery in Bulgaria - I wonder if it is operated by the monks?

I like the heavy duty tires on the old firetruck. Looks like it should still work.

Fire engines always fascinate me, especially since my younger son was drafted in the 2 years compulsory National Service with the Civil Defence.

What a beautiful old firetruck. I love the European ones much better than modern day firetrucks. Thank you :) for the great "f"
