Electrical Safety in Cuba - Low on the list of priorities?

The daughter of a colleague at work has just returned from a holiday on Cuba and took these interesting photos. Thought I'd share these.












This was wiring to a home made washing machine.










This was the washing machine itself.









Any guesses what this was for?


Cuba is a lovely country to visit. Most visitors will understand that in a developing country, there are many other priorities that come before electrical safety. People in rural areas are lucky to have electricity at all.

However in a developed country, there is no excuse for the following type of cavalier attitude to electricity. I suspect this may well have been staged, but wouldn't be surprised if it was true.
