This is how Shenzhen's Dameisha Beach—in China—looks at the end of the annual Dragon Boat Festival. Some 780,000 people dumped more than 362 tonnes of rubbish in just one weekend. It seems unreal that people can still relax surrounded by so much garbage, just imagining the stench makes me feel sick.
