East Shemesh- ‘Slums of Avesta’ Location: that area of town just to the west and northwest of the quarry No.6
This area of town is some of the oldest and most rundown and is the home for most of the quarry workers, those at the bottom of the social pile in Avesta. The closer to the vast pit of the Quarry the less buildings and more hovels you see. A maze of streets and dingy, smelling alleys. the area is dangerous, full of petty crime and ne’er do-wells. People who want to lie low can easily disappear in here, but your life can be ended just as quickly here too.
