Diving in Polluted Algiers

Ive done dives in many countries and on all continents, but none as polluted as my dives in Algiers.

My first dive was on a Friday afternoon when the busy was at its busiest with kids splashing around in the water. We dove down and spent around an hour on 9-10 meters dept. All I could see were some small fish and an octopus and a lot and lot of trash, just like I did the next day.

After the dive I walked around the streets thinking how sad it was with all the trash over and under the water surface. It was then that me and my friend noticed the Mayor, Abdelhakim Bettache on the other side of the street. We told him what we thought about all the trash in the city and he promised us that he would work on doing something about it.
