Wiseman, Alaska. Formerly a gold-diggers town.

Wiseman now has 13 inhabitants: eskimos, indians, and a family from Bavaria.

On the road to the graveyard of the town is this container with beer cans. Most people go to the closest city only two or three times a year (the drive takes more than a day each way).

Needless to say: there is no garbage collection.
