Rainy season.  It is around 3a.m. in the middle of the night and a storm is raging above Curahuasi.  Dorothea Töws is filming the nightly scene through the window of her flat.  At this moment a flash of lightning strikes a sensitive part of the city’s electricity system.  Click on the above picture to see for yourself what happens next.
