Wonder what you would find if you frisked the landscape of Guatemala City?
Answer: A giant sinkhole!
Yes… I realize this has nothing to do with politics, but this photograph is absolutely amazing.
The New York Times reports:
This astonishingly unnerving photograph was posted today on the Flickr.com feed of the Guatemalan goverment and shows a seemingly bottomless sinkhole that opened up on Sunday in Guatemala City as a swath of Central America was drenched by tropical storm Agatha. Click here for the high-resolution version, if you dare. The storm only briefly hit tropical storm strength on Saturday as it came ashore from the Pacific Ocean over the weekend, but the death toll had risen to 115 at last count. Here’s a street-level view.
Unfortunately, this is not the only time a giant sinkhole showed up in Guatemala City. Click here to view the 2007 one. Hmm… What the heck is going on underneath this city? Personally, I am waiting on the media to blame global cooling for this one…
