Kolmanskop, a ghost town in the desert of southern Namibia, Africa. In the 1900s, diamonds were discovered just sitting upon the sand, waiting to be found, so people from all over the world with diamond fever flocked there. After the First World War when diamonds sales dropped, the sand-clearing squad failed to show up. Kolmanskop turned into a ghost town being buried by sand and trapped in time.
