Unusual place worth a stop-by and some rare pictures of military and civil vehicles, a sort of monument to the long absurd war between aggressive Etiopia and poor Eritrea.

Lots of folks in Asmara are skinnier than Jack LaLane so a pile of war trash dies not impress me for any reason, especially not when Chinese contractors are ready to pay cash for this junk.

Won’t take long to view the unique vast array of tanks, cars, army vehicles, etc. flattened and put into heaps of discarded metal. Especially interesting now that Eritrea and Ethiopia have achieved peace.

It is impressive to see a so large quantity of dismissed tanks, trucks, cars, and other war vehicles. The fact that they are rusted and piled up make them appear as a strange monument.
