world_water_day

boston.com’s “bigpicture” published a good gallery as a tribute to the “world_water_day”! You can discover there Japanese men enjoying water during the Saidaiji Naked Festival (Hadaka Matsuri) or Italians diving into the Tiber River from the Cavour Bridge during New Year actions, watch the Marine Life Park in Singapore or a horse swimming through Loch Lomond in Scotland, students hit by a jet of water during a protest or nomad women, carrying water on their heads near Kabul; discover a water pump at a refugee camp or a cistern in Idlib, Syria – realize that water is very important …

  11. Wonderful photos!
    We cannot live without water. I live in a desert climate and our area is dependent on snowfall in the mountains and the resulting water runoff from the spring snow melt to fill our reservoirs. A low snowfall total, like two winters ago, gets concerning.
