It is a rare rainy day in San Miguel, which brings me to the subject of roof drains, the flat roof equivalent of eave spouts.
See those projections extending out from the roof? They serve to drain water off the flat roof. In even a moderate shower a flat roof of any size collects a lot of water. These drains extend out over the sidewalk. Walking down the sidewalk in the rain becomes an exercise in dodging the showers of water coming down from these roof drains.
Two young citizens in their sweatsuits in school colors whom I encountered while I was trying to take some illustrative photographs of roof drains for you.
