Photographer's Note

You might be asking why I call them fortunate... these two have mud boots (like scuba gear for divers) which compared with their peers makes them very lucky. Indeed, there is nothing fortunate about this situation. This landfill has appeared on TE before... I took some supplies there with me on my recent trip (toothbrushes, toothpaste, rice, band aids, ointment) - It was quite heart wrenching to witness first hand - I experience similarly strong emotions when I put together this Slide show

It's really beyond description and I don't recommend you visit unless you have full on boots & masks... I think I got conjuntivitus from touching my shoe laces ~ eyes - 4 weeks later... but who knows, could have been anything.
