Thanks for the comments and favs.

The town is beautiful in an odd way, but it is a rather surreal experience indeed. The buildings and wealth that once were there (hospital, casino, ice factory, school, ...) in such hostile environment is truly bizarre . The fact that it is now abandoned and disintegrating even more so.

Maud vraag zich af waarom de mensen niet gewoon de deur dicht doen als ze weggaan ;-)
