Last month, I went down the drains and explored the sewers below the city of Breda. This was during the “Week van Ons Water” (Week of Our Water), which was set up to inform citizens and businesses about the value of clean and safe water. The organisation planned lots of (mostly) free activities, so when I read about the sewer tours I just had to grab the chance to do some unusual sightseeing in my hometown!
While we were shuffling along like little blue ducklings following their sewer-guide-mother-duck-man, I kept my eyes wide open for any crawling creatures. I spotted countless of floating turds (naturally), but also noticed a shimmering and slimy blob just above the water. I asked one of the guides to point his flashlight to the wall and this is what we saw (I may have slightly manipulated the colours to make this image seem more impressive).
