Flood

Gellért Thermal Baths, Budapest, Hungary

There was a flood at the Gellért back in 2002. Watch the two men, so casually and calmly, “soak” it all in at 1:44. Then, at 3:14, they get out of the pool and start walking around. At 4:34, water spills onto the streets.

So much hot mineral water gone to waste!
