tales of the uncollected

The archipelago is a star attraction for tourists as well as a resort for the locals. Still, not every corner is a pretty sight. Here's where garbage is (supposedly) being collected in Furusund.

I have to post more images like this, the darkest or dirtiest spots in our cities.

As administrators generally say: "the service is to some extent reduced during vacation time". The reduction in this case seems to be 100%.

Quite a contrast in a pretty, romantic place like this.

Vogon Poet: For obvious reasons it's more fun to deliver pleasant images but I guess there's always the other side of any coin and I agree that we should try to give a reasonably balanced view. Not just the postcards.

Svenske Floyd: In fairness, this was taken early Monday morning. I imagine the place looked fine on Friday afternoon but there simply wasn't capacity enough for serving all the weekend visitors.

Thanks guys.
