this is my last day.
I took the same route as on the first day and was still able to discover something new.
Seven days are enough to give the problem a visual voice.
I could have visited more dirty places, but in this way I have an inner plastic map of my living space. And for a such sparsely populated area in nature it is alarming. Let’s think about, that we can do.
