8 An Abandoned Military Town

An Abandoned Military Town

Posted on November 17, 2010 by team

Photos from Gremeekha military town. Winds here are so strong, that they even blow away untethered dogs. The population of the town was 300 000, but when the navy left it, the population went down to 10 000 citizens – people are boarding up windows and leaving homes.

    In such towns, when they have gathered enough money, the mayors usually make the non-inhabited buildings (or inhabited only by few people) teared down, and restore only some in order to gather all the population in brand new flats.

    Doesn’t make much sense to board up windows if you’re leaving and never coming back.

    Wonder where all these hundreds of thousands of people in assorted abandoned towns went to, and why they didn’t go there in the first place?

    Will the last person to leave Gremeekha please turn out the lights.
