Sisyphean monument

comments: 0

You do not come across monuments like the one on the road from Miały to Biała every day. A narrow-gauge railway carriage serves as a reminder of the Sisyphean task that a certain Paweł Jechalik accomplished. He dug a 170m channel to Lake Górne to prevent his land from being degraded by water from Lake Zdręczno. This would not be so strange were it not for the fact that the farmer only availed himself of hand tools and the abovementioned carriage.  commenced at age 72 and took 11 years.
