IT IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE IF IT WAS NOT FOR THE SHIT

NERJA by KRISS on 12 april 2017

A year ago I was discovering with shame and horror that Nerja did not yet have a sewage system and that all raw sewage was directly poured into the sea.
Since this discovery I witnessed the filthy phenomenon that goes with it, concretely, liquid shit and piss and tampons etc… floating along the coast and the beaches of Nerja.
It happened to me a few times last year.

But I had read that the sewage plant, supposed to be running already last year, was delayed until beginning of February 2017 when first test runs would be happening.
I sincerely imagined the summer of 2017 would be different.

But actually I haven’t seen a single pipe move at the sewage plant, not have I seen much activity for that matter.
Truth be said I don’t live nearby but every time I drive past it it seems like nothing has changed visually from the last time.
The enormous pipes are still sunbathing outside of the ground, same spot, no change.

And of course there is no sewage plant to be heard of this year and I honestly doubt there ever will be.

But what is to be heard of is the default on one of the pipes that pours Nerja’s shit into the sea.
They leak of course but not much, just enough to feed fishes on the east end of Burriana and the west end of Torecilla where they run for 1.5km long if I remember it right.
But yesterday it seems one of them broke for realz peeps and it was another feast of shit for this Semana Santa, one of the busiest week of the year (supposedly), along the beaches as far as Maro.

Maybe further even but Maro I am sure because I went to the Playa de la Alberquilla for a photoshoot yesterday and if it hadn’t been for the shit in the water I’m sur we would have braved the cold and get amazing pictures.
We found other ways to get good pictures but I never really managed to get this of my mind.
The fact it was right in my face every time I looked at the see didn’t help either.

So I am posting a beautiful, well kind of, photograph I took to check my manual settings in between 2 sets of shots yesterday.
Just to show that Nerja would actually be a very beautiful place… if it wasn’t for the shit along the coastline !
