we can talk about the migration crisis, the social crisis, the whatever crisis bullshit somewhere else, but this was nice for a change.

FYI, that photo will probably go over pretty well at the department of immigration. I would just print out a wide format version and staple it to the outside of the folder. No one is going to look too deep at what is inside.

Carabineros has a long history of having to assist during deliveries. I can't remember when they started receiving some instructions on what to do ( ~30 years ago, or more ??), and it came after a number of situations in which they were the only ones at hand. I believe it used to happen more often in smaller rural communities. I remember that they also created some symbol to be given to carabineros that assisted a delivery.

I think that this could be the badge that carabineros who assisted a delivery were given:
This carabinero was decorated for helping in an emergency delivery, and one can see the 'piocha' mentioned above in his chest.

We have actually run in to the carabineros on horseback up in the mountains of the Patagonia, along the Argentina boarder. They were out checking on an old rancher that had had a heart attack a few months before. There were no phone lines, and the roads were mostly 4x4 (i.e. horse with 4 feet). We were up there because he wanted to sell his property and move to town, so their nephew was giving us a tour of the property on horseback. They often do things like deliver messages and such from family and friends in town when they do those patrols.
