Wanton Disregard

Bags full of garbage thrown in city waterways that flow into the River Plate wash up onto the beach at Pocitos in Montevideo. Garbage management is still a problem in the city and lack of awareness makes matters worse. Shortly after taking this photo I was asked to leave the beach by some Coast Guard type who said that the area was a "military zone" off-limits to civilians. For a "military zone" it looked pretty darn unkempt. Obviuosly they're too busy with their other military duties, or perhaps they were testing some sort of new defense system.
