#121 cooling water

121/365 cooling water, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

My monthly post of the Finnish name for May will have to wait till I get back home. I am also thinking of home, as the 1st of May is a big spring festival celebration in our country, and I expect family and friends are out having their first picknicks in a park.

In Sinpore, the weather was hot, sticky and close, with thunderstorms in the air. We were taken to see the latest big construction by the sea, the Marina Barrage.

It’s a big water reservoir and flood damming system in the city itself. It also provides recreational areas, such as this paddling pool, where you can walk through tunnels formed by arching sprays of water. The mere presence of water has a cooling effect on a scorching hot day.

    I like the way you caught the water droplets.

    Did the humid, sticky weather in Singapore make you think differently of the fresh, cold weather of Finnish winter?
