This is a tragedy.

I may do a longer story on this, because frankly, it’s appalling. The amount of trash on the ground, in the streets, in the bushes and trees and yes, the sand dunes, is flabbergasting. You would think that the locals would not put up with this, but they do. The don’t only put up with it, they contribute to it. Hell they’re probably completely responsible for it. Because I sure as heck didnt’ see any tourists contributing to this mess.

These are glorious, wonderful, amazing red send dunes in Vietnam. Trashed.

How do you reconcile this much trash among such natural beauty?

But that photo above… that’s about the best photo I could get, where I saw the least trash. I actually gave up trying to avoid the trash, and decided to document it instead.

Here, have a closer look.
