"The Door to Hell" - In 1971, Soviet geologists drilled into a cavern of natural gas near the Turkmen village of Derweze.  The ground gave way beneath their machinery, forming a 230-foot-wide sinkhole. In order to control the emission of gas from this new aperture between us and the underworld, they decided to burn it, expecting the fire to use up the fuel in a few days.  It’s still burning today.

This would be an amazing place to visit. It is The Monasteries of the Meteora in Greece. I love Gregorian Chant music performed by monks as a form of worship and to think of the beauty of the architecture not to mention all of the old books that are housed there. What a dream place...

This reminds me of the Incan Empire from "Emperor's New Groove. Monasteris of the Meteora, Greece.
