10 Cities of the Lost World
It is. Tell me you wouldn't want to step back in time and see those places in action.
Looks like we will be able to add Detroit soon
is the place I'd most like to see of all those.
Great post Grace!! Never heard of the Derinkuyu Underground City and did a little searching on it, wow!
I didn't know Turkey had dozens of underground cities like this... Makes one wonder what else could be buried around that area.
Turkey's a great place for lost cities, because it was an ancient crossroads and is where the Roman Empire and its remnants lasted the longest. I saw a great show where they had to recover as many Roman artifacts as possible from a lost city before a dam turned the area into a lake. Basically, you can't put a hole in the ground there without digging up history. Oh yeah, those underground cities ARE cool!
My personal choice to go back and see in real time would be the Minoan cities. The castles of the ruling class were not walled off from the general populace, and they had running water, hot and cold, flush toilets, over 3600 years ago.
Whatever you do, GO to Machu Picchu! Its incredible; the feeling can't even be explained with words.
You've been!?! It's one of my "bucket list" locations. I've had a fascination with the Inca Empire since I got burned out with Ancient Western civilizations...
