Trash beach

I just spent a week on a little, cozy beach on the Pacific coast. It was marvelous, as it was absolutely empty. Just a few Canadians and Americans as I arrived, everything perfect.

As the week went down, the North Americans went back to their places, after having spent the whole winter (as much as five months) on the beach.

Then a plague arrived! Mexicans. What a disgrace.

It was a matter of hours. Few dozens of tourists besieged our beautiful, quiet republic... with trash! They are able to spent hours next to plastic bottles, mango debris or chip bags without even noticing it. I spent time cleaning the beach up, but it was useless. Trash on the sand, trash on the streets, trash everywhere.

Churchill famously said once: "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender [...]"

Yes, specially regarding Mexican stupidity.
