Swimming over Manhattan

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Fancy a morning swim while looking at NYC skyline? This brilliant pool is located in Mumbai, India and it was created by an ad agency for HSBC. They cleverly placed a bird's eye view of New York City's skyline at the bottom of a pool to increase awarness of the threat of rising sea levels due to global warming. Bravo! xo

That is brilliant! Oh gosh, I'd love to take a swim there too. Such geniuses.

Plus it's been insanely hot in Malaysia, a swim would be just perfect. x

That is really rather cool. The only downside I can see is that it looks like it would be amazing if NYC flooded, which is clearly not true. Makes you think though.
