I had to get a pic fast as the stench was overpowering.
Once I had the misfortune of getting stuck in traffic behind a garbage truck making its rounds in La Ceiba. Wish I’d had a movie camera as it was simply an open stakebed truck, and the garbage was just being thrown in loosely, the plastic bins emptied upside down amid the hordes of flies and thrown back onto the sidewalk — some of it dribbling back out onto the street.
So as bad as Costa Rica is getting, it has a long way to go to emulate that country just to it’s northeast. YUCK !
