As soon as I graduated collage I knew that I wanted to travel across Asia! It is full of amazing and unique countries and landmarks.
The First place I wanted to travel was to China to see some incredible rivers! Then I wanted to go see more rivers in India.
Pollution is ruining rivers
When I finally arrived at the Yangtze (Chang Jiang) river I was in for a big surprise! It had so much blue-green algae pollution that i couldn't event see my finger tips. Plus the coast was filled with dead plants so the trip wasn't as cool as i thought.
Next on my list was the Ganges river in India! At first I had a lot of hope but then it all went away when I got there. The water was a disgusting color,it smelled horrible, and there was animal remains floating around! I guess pollution just got really out of hand.
Overall the pollution had a noticeable effect on the plants, animals, and humans that lived around it! They had water borne illnesses and so many sickness just in general. We tend to take advantage of our clean water until we see what others have.
