Monday Moaning

This is not so much a moan, but a real bitch.

This post is about kids who have nothing, and I mean nothing. They live in a rubbish dump slum at Cateura outside Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay.


When I look at kids in the western world and all they have, then I am faced with kids who have nothing and make the most of it.

This music is rubbish!

Could this play music?


It’s made from rubbish, the stops are bottle caps…

What about these?



Now watch this video.

Isn’t that awesome?

It goes to show that we in the west who have so much, really know so little.

You can read more about the Recycled Orchestra on Anita’s Notebook, it’s in English.

  1. And yet those who have so little appreciate what they find and those with so much appreciate so little their abundance.

    I have a deep respect for anyone who can turn rubbish into creative beauty.



Be green, say something
