Anyway, I forgot to say that I have placed your entrecard on my blog tho I didn't know that it will only last or 2 days. You are welcome to drop in your card again if you want.

That was totally distressing. ..When mother earth gets revenge on the damage of nature, it is the worst destruction of human habitat.

This place was one of beatiful tourist destinations.
It was a tragedy that happened in a big city. It's not a river. It was broken down made lake that the whole water in it pouring out into the houses below. The people will be relocated to the safer place. I hope my government will learn a lot from this.
