In my last post, I wrote that PR has the most cars per square mile in the world. But I’d be so bold as to say that at least 1/4 of those cars are sitting around abandoned.
I drive through a slightly dodgy neighborhood on my way to school. I take the most direct road straight though it (past the shoes hanging from the telephone wires above). But one day a garbage truck was blocking the road so I took a slightly different route to circumvent it. Which led me deeper into the neighborhood. To find nearly every house had an abandoned car.
I took all 12 of these photos in a 4 block stretch. Some cars you can’t tell are abandoned from the photo, but believe me. I could tell they were.
Some had aged flat tires. Some no wheels at all. Some just had a layer of dust, while some had bushes growing on them.
Is it hard to get rid of an old car here? What’s the process? Is there a large fee? The hassle must be more than the people deem worthy if they are willing to put up with all these eyesores.
I could have snapped one more, but the nice guy in front of it was kindly waving at me while feeding his chickens (in the road). I thought it would be rude to just snap a photo of the old car behind him. And risk hitting one of his chickens. In the road.
