Irisan Dumpsite

IRISAN DUMPSITE

August 27, 2011. Saturday night. My friend told me that a couple of people died from a landslide in Irisan dumpsite. It’s not actually a landslide, it’s more of like a garbage slide. August 28, 2011. Sunday morning. I woke up early and decided to go to Irisan but the rain and the strong wind stopped me from going. My friends in Irisan advised me not to go because danger is still around the corner. So I waited…

August 30, 2011. Tuesday morning. I finally made to Irisan dumpsite but it was zero visibility because of the fog. I stayed for three hours but nothing happened and it was still raining hard that day. August 31, 2011. Wednesday morning. Finally, the sky is clear and it looks like the sun is about to shine. I finally made to IRISAN DUMPSITE!

 

THE ARRIVAL:  this is where it all began. I’ve never seen so much garbage in my whole life. nahulog yung kabundok na basura mula Irisan pababa ng Asin road.

  6. Maraming salamat din sa pagbisita :) OK naman sa PNR, maayos naman ang takbo, yun nga lang hindi maganda yung tanawin dahil napapalibutan ng squatters area yung paligid ng tren... medyo depressing nga lang
