Communities can be absolutely beautiful if they are maintained and people live, eat, and drink, healthy! However it seems every year during high tourist season there are some communities that are ridden with trash or vandalism and it only gets worse …. photos are from the mainland and islands below.
These have a lot to do with “respect” (or not) to towns and cities! Those of us who respect architecture and understand the value of classical buildings, also understand a city can soon turn into a ghetto because random scribbles or tagging soon opens the community to crime, drugs etc. as proven time and time again. Never mind the rats and animals who then contribute to harmful diseases, thus we need to be continuously “on alert”!
In contrast, see how sea urchins flourish in these beautiful clean waters.
And how art and creative “writing” — in this case a mermaid painted on a small boat, and poetry on abandoned village walls — can add value to communities! Think smart, and work on positive contributions today for a better tomorrow.
