This 80-year-old looks like a troll, or maybe some other dark creature from “Lord of the Rings.” His skin is covered with scales flaking dirt, eyes barely visible, and the stench of it felt a mile away. The reason is simple, and it is not a skin diseases or some horrible ailment – just, the man had not bathed in 60 years!
Nobody knows why he lives such a life, and why not bathed for several decades.
Sometimes he is fed by the locals.
Most of the time he spends not budging – asleep or quietly basking in the sun.
He has been living on this brick structure in the outskirts of the Amu.
Hard to believe that in the photo – human hands. More like elephant skin.
