A picture of a boat drawn by Diego Guerrero, 7, is seen in the village of Sotomo, outside the town of Cochamo, Los Lagos region, Chile, August 8, 2021. Picture taken August 8, 2021. Diego wants to be a sailor and loves to go out on his father Carlos's fishing boat. Carlos has more ambitious plans for his son and hopes the window onto the world the new internet connection will give him will broaden his horizons. "If he has a good education, he has that option and is eager to do it, then you have all the hopes of any father, that maybe one day all the children from Sotomo can go on to professional jobs."

Carlos Guerrero, 40, smokes a cigarette outside his house during the power outage scheduled daily from midnight until noon, in the town of Sotomo, outside the town of Cochamo, Los Lagos region, Chile, August 7, 2021. Picture taken August 7, 2021. Sotomo is one of two places in Chile to be chosen for a pilot project run by billionaire Elon Musk to receive free internet for a year. The signal is received via a satellite dish installed on the school's roof, which transmits through a Wi-Fi device and only works from noon to midnight, because of a constrained supply of diesel to the generator that supplies power to the town.
