"leaving our marks "
is the titel of one of the recently uploaded fotos,showing a young women writin her name at the stone entrance to a cave.
Why are people leaving this marks behind ?
It makes me always angry when I see this stupid marks like "I was here" especially when the are scrached in stones at historical places.
do people not reconice that they are destroying valuable cultural items?It shows in my opinion also no respect to a country and his culture leavin such marks behind.
a few years ago a young men from Chile was arrested in Cusco/Peru because he left marks at the Inca wall.He had to stay in prison till it was clear who is paying the cleaning of the soiled part of the wall.
I think he will never leave a mark of this type somewhere behind.
can you leave marks behind ?
yes,in a gaestbook at your hostal/hotel or the visiters book at the museum...
