heavy rain turns street - land under

the hot and humid weather in the last days had clouds gathering around Hanoi and today it has turned the street I'm normally walking in a land under. It looked like a river flowing through the city. Unfortunately I had an event going on, luckily I got a taxi, unlucky I didn't have one of my big gear with me. But what the hell restriction is sometimes what you need and at least I had my iPhone 4 and could tke some images out of the cab.

Astonishing how fast the water had been changing the street into a streaming river and stopping nearly all traffic - fascinating.

Clouds are coming in low like fog and the rain starts to pour down.

Drainage system overflowed and the river starts to build up.
