    Amazing abandoned places in the world…

    This is the Cenote Angelita river in Mexico. Like many other rivers in the world, you can find trees & leaves along its banks. Notice that little guy to the left of the picture? That's a scuba diver. Because unlike other rivers, this one is underwater. The "river" is made of a layer of hydrogen sulfide which separates a layer of salt water below from a layer of fresh water above. The river was discovered by divers who entered the 200 ft deep Cenote Angelita cave in Mexico.

    The photographer commented that she rode the tornado out in a ditch that was close, and that most of the building was left standing, but the tin roof was probably in the next county. She didn't say where this was taken.
