How about a shower in Riga?

Sometimes it rains in Riga.

But most of the time it doesn’t take that long. However the intensity and the amount of water is tremendous. The sewer system cannot handle this amount and to illustrate this, I borrowed ๐Ÿ™‚ some pictures and 2 movies on youtube and facebook.

it is possible that that the movie on facebook is notย accessible for some of the readers. My apologies for that.

      It looks pretty bad, but it is also gone after 1 hour. What I do like here is that most cars slow down and drive really slow when they are passing people on the sidewalk.

    I never noticed that! They still drive like lunatics when I’m walking around! Glad I’m in sunny England! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just vomit on the streets here!

    This happens in many Russian cities too that are without underground plumbing. So much fun to wade through all that!
