Natural Wonder

Isn't this amazing? A Venezuelan church has been submerged since 1985 when a hydroelectric dam was built, and was finally exposed because of a countrywide drought. This 82-foot tall church is located in Potosi, Venezuela, an Andes mountain town. While a drought is nothing to celebrate, it revealed this beautiful structure that's been hiding all these years just below the surface.

Holy cow! How amazing--not the draught, of course, but this hidden building! It's cool how the world we think we know so well can still surprise us so often!

I saw this the other day! How amazing....
And in response to your comment, yes, the house is stark - I myself have been gravitating towards antique and traditional items and houses lately. But I couldn't resist that floating cabin!
