Some New Deserted Places

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Some of them have been shown here before, but most of these are new.

I think my favorite is the “futuristic resort” (left) in Taiwan. They supposedly are haunted by those who died in their creation, making them one of the

few that really lives up to the “ghost town” name.

The one on the right is one of the more famous modern distaster zones -Chernobyl. Those living here had to leave pretty much all their possessions behind after the “accident.”
