Stray Horses Raid Trash Bins in Kamchatka

  Stray horses ravaging the trash bins became a real problem for the Kamchatka towns. At least this is what says Boris, manager of the local trash removal company. "If there are dogs or birds on
other trash sites, we have horses here. They wander uncontrollably around and climb into the trash bins, throw around the trash. They ruin our work!". We have more photos. See inside.

On the Edge of a Dark Pit

Olenegorsk, Russia is like this. A Northern town, with a population of around 20,000, it is much further north than the polar circle. This means that there are times in the year - called Polar winters - when the sun doesn't rise and doesn't lighten up peoples lives in the city. This is not the only thing, but now add to this a large, deep mine pit,
which looks pretty depressing even at daytime during this air flight around it, but then in winter when it's all dark and the whole small town is situated on the edge of the primordial dark pit which in size looks like not much smaller than the town itself. Might be a pretty romantic location for some of the Olenegorskians...
