12 km’s of visible industrialism

We went on a 4 day trip around North-East Estonia, the industrial and Soviet “mecca” of our small country. One of the most staggering sights was turning a corner on a narrow forest road and seeing a transportation “band”, which takes oil shale from a mine to a processing plant. The “band” is nearly 12km’s long, almost perfectly straight and mostly covered. We managed to catch a glimpse of the actual oil shale when we dove over the “band”.
