From: pete592Wow, high res at last! I saw a documentary about this place on Discovery HD Theater and I've been wanting to see just how big of an operation it is. What a sad situation for the people whose only option is to work here.

From: squidI just read "The Outlaw Sea" by William Langeswiesche. A good study of the politics at sea including a narrative of the "recyclers" of Alang Beach.
