One can admire the industrial architecture of the port of Brazzaville, of course, but the shipyards have completely altered the coastal landscape and have spurred the arrival of squatters in the free town of Etatolo. Welders live alongside the homeless who seek shelter in abandoned ships. In some places, the hulls form pools where seepage of oil and gas inexorably flows into the Congo River. It is a true ecological and human nightmare, strewn with rotting shipwrecks.
