Corfu, Greece: "Hills of Rubbish and Seaweed" - Kaloudis - «οι λόφοι σκουπιδιών και φυκιών υποβαθμίζουν την τουριστική αξία της Κέρκυρας».

From Corfu Press

"Everyday, hills of trash and seaweed degrade the touristic value of Corfu" - Kaloudis

Οι εικόνες βρώμας και οσμών με λόφους τα σκουπίδια στη πόλη και λόφους τα φύκια στις παραλίες προσβάλλουν τη νοημοσύνη μας και υποβαθμίζουν καθημερινά τη τουριστική αξία της Κέρκυρας

And what about the health of the residents and visitors?

    My mum has just arrived Sunday to ipsos and is absolutely horrified by the dirt and piles of rubbish. Two elderly ladies trying not to stumble on junk. Disgraceful and no way to welcome tourists who've spent a lot of money to get there. Introduce a tax and clean the place up. My mum has 13 days staying around a rubbish tip.
