Argentine Foot Bath
Argentina, especially in the capitol (Buenos Aires Federal District) the sidewalks are made of tile. This really is very nice looking, and the are efficient, unless a tile comes loose. Then you have problems, especially when it rains. It does rain a lot in Buenos Aires. The moisture gets under the tile, and then when you step on the tile it works as a little pump and squirts water on your feet and ankles. You can protect yourself with an umbrellas, but there is no protection against the little foot bathes coming from below.
