The municipal rubbish dump at Yerevan.

Whether they’re burning it deliberately I don’t know, nor do I know what the chaps clambering over the burning rubbish are doing. It doesn’t look like a very safe or healthy occupation, anyway.

A proper incinerator would produce much less noxious smoke and fumes than this open fire does; and if the chaps are picking out stuff to recycle, it’s a pity that isn’t done before it catches fire! Video on youtube.
