UAE Day 39: smoking pipes & dropping acid

So remember how all that saw dust, 6 years of dirt, and the previous tennant's filth all got squished around by men who were "cleaning"?  All that dirty water was forced into floor drains in the bathrooms and kitchen.  This clogged the pipes connected to the drains, which were probably not in good shape anyway.  Turns out the solution to this problem is to pump out all the stagnant water trapped in the pipe system, then drop acid into the pipes.  This sounds like fireworks and smoke billows out of the trains.  It is not safe to breathe.  So, I made a prompt exit and slept on a friend's couch.  

Pumping water before and after various unclogging efforts prior to the acid drop.
