Bubble bath anyone?!

Last Thursday I went into the office after a while. The day was sunny, and the traffic was pretty great, considering I travelled by train. Passing by the River (an official fountain name) locally known as Floozie in the Jacuzzi on Victoria Square, Birmingham, I finally saw running water behind the fence.

It has been so long since the construction work began around Victoria square. They have changed the stone here and there, tidied up a bit and, of course, worked on the fountain which was previously filled with soil.

It is quite a joy to see Birmingham looking like a city again.

So going back to the story. At lunchtime, we went out and the fountain was already open to the public. People were sitting around it and it seemed like a great idea to have lunch here next time.

The evening came and we left the building. While slowly walking toward the train station and chatting away with a colleague, I saw a chunk of foam floating in the air. Ermmm, well that's new... or Not!

The Floozie in the Jacuzzi was yet again filled with washing up liquid. This happens often, but you don't expect it on the day of the opening. Clearly, someone had his/her hands itching.

I find it a little funny and also quite pretty. And the aroma in the air was lovely!
What do you think?

P.S. - just read a piece of news regards the foam. Unfortunately, it damaged the equipment and the fountain has been switched off yet again.

That's a really cool fountain. So does the city put the soap in or is it a common prank by the people?

It has been done by pranksters and has damaged the equipment that runs the water. Now the fountain is switched off again, sadly.

It does! They were working really hard to get the fountain open before the Commonwealth games.

That’s pretty funny. Great to hear they’ve been investing in the square. All cities need a bit of spruce up from time to time.

It is looking nice, however, it damaged the equipment and the fountain is switched off again. 🙁
I will add a link to the news in the body.

Dear @rimicane, we need your help!

The Hivebuzz proposal already got an important support from the community. However, it lost its funding few days ago and only needs a few more HP to get funded again.

May we ask you to support it so our team can continue its work this year?
You can do it on Peakd, ecency, Hive.blog or using HiveSigner.

Your support would be really helpful and you could make the difference! Thank you!
