Pipes leave the room and branch out. One of them leads directly out of the window and opens into a shower on a sidewalk. Others follow different funnels, stairs, hoses, gutters, and udders along offices, meeting rooms and toilets of different political parties. Small plants are sprouting wherever the system leaks. The system reached gradually the ground floor.
