Rambo in the water

Spotted this rainbow in Dalat today.

Rainbow in Dalat

In the 1980s I lived in Bombay. One day a neighbourhood kid came running There is Rambo in the water!”. When we went to investigate, we found that he was describing the rainbow pattern that oil leaking from a car had made on a small puddle. Seems, the kid liked to mispronounce rainbow as Rambo (Rambo movies were the craze those days).
