Taking out the trash
In support of Environmental Week, the participants of last night’s hash were asked to fill up a bag of garbage as they transited the Grand Mal beach at the beginning of the run. Rebecca and I, of course, played along but we heard from some of our local friends that this particular beach is probably one of the cleanest on the island. It was a nice idea anyway.
We love hashes that end at a beach where we can swim and clean off.
The venue for last night’s hash was the same as the 700th that we attended last season.
While visiting cities in the various islands in the Caribbean we have noted that the streets of some appear to be exceptionally clean while others have trash scattered everywhere. It probably won’t surprise you to hear that the cleanest cities had trash cans placed conspicuously all over the place while the dirtiest spots had none to be found. If only they all had the resources, or perhaps the desire, to keep their cities and countryside clean. You’d have to think that it would aide tourism.
The above trash can, and many more like it, was in Roseau, Dominica.
As you might guess, the streets of Roseau were quite clean.
