Miners at work, they will not get older then 50 as the chemicals in the mines are extremely toxic, I got a severe lung infection after visiting, nice!

This guy worked here since he was 12, he was 38 but looked like 60. His job was to pulverize the ore. Each bag was about a 100 kilos and had to do this for a week, till he would go down again to fill bags and somebody else would take over his task. Not nice!

So we went to the third level of the mines after we already lost some of our other visiting guests. I tell you I will never go into a mine again, I got extremely claustrofobic going back up, as the passageways where tiny. You had to crawl all the way up and everywehere there where holes where you could tumble to your death, nice:)

mooie foto`s
Schitterende foto`s zeg! Wij in Frankrijk net een hittegolf achter de rug. Pffffff! Dan doe je ook niet veel meer, behalve in het zwembad liggen en koele drankjes drinken. Geniet ze verder. Bisous de nous et Tim.
