"Jack, do you see the iceberg? Because it seems to me that we hit something" . In the 1960s Munyak was the largest Uzbek port city in the Aral Sea. A paradise for fishermen, who fished 7% of all fish sold in the Soviet Union. The production of fish cans amounted to up to 22 million cans per year. Since the 1970s, the lake has been shrinking: the Soviet Union, in those years, decided to double the already existing cotton production in Uzbekistan, diverting the existing rivers in thousands of irrigations. It was the end of the Aral: In 1979, Muynak was no longer even a port because the water, used for the irrigation of the growing cotton fields, was almost no longer reaching the huge lake. . Today Munyaq is a small desert village. Lake Aral has dried up for 90% and is 150km away from the semi-abandoned village, once a flourishing port. A natural tragedy caused by human greed. . Now in the port of Munyak you can witness a sad but fascinating parking lot for rusty ships, while the wind continues to cradle them in the dunes. .
