What a Load of Rubbish


The sales brochure for Greece's Aegean islands rightly focus on the pristine beaches and the idyllic mountain/sea scenery.

Of course: there's more to life, and here on Kalymnos we have a whole neighbourhood, just outside the East End of the town, which is hopelessly devoted to trash.

There is a special section of sea cliff for washing machines (above) and a separate beach for crushed cars (below).

My favourite is the boneyard of battered lorries and fucked up fridges. It's beautiful.

Hey, if you're from Kalymnos Council and you're rading this, don't freak out - I'm not trying to put tourists off our Aegean paradise, I'm trying to attract artists. They love this stuff.

Crap! (literally) I thought those paliatzi guys are supposed to come 'round and pick that stuff up.
