I visited The Aral Sea in 2010 during summer break. I wanted to see devastated lakes called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters" since I watched a Japanese TV program about it. Since I was a extremely poor student, I was not able to have any translator. What I had was a "POINT-AND-SPEAK" prase book in Russian. During my trip, I saw some really unbelievable scenes, which was like as if I was in "Planet of the Apes". Abandoned old fishing boats lay in the middle of the desert, which there used to be huge beautiful lakes. Once-thriving fish town has almost gone. At first, I just couldn't believe what I was looking at through my eyes. I was so sad but then I harbored some amount of resentment at what human did to the Aral Sea. How could it be poosilbe? We souldn't do such a foolish things to nature never again for convenience of our life, money, whatever.
