First we have reindeer herders almost falling into mysterious craters that suddenly appear in Siberia. At about the same time, shepherds in southern Tunisia find a lake suddenly appearing in the middle of a desert. Was Jules Verne right about tunnels through the center of the earth?
Probably not, but I never pass up an opportunity to mention the great Jules Verne.
It’s summer in Tunisia so the appearance of any water is a welcome sight, even H2O that pops up overnight like a liquid crop circle. Soon after it was found about three weeks ago, swimmers dove into what at the time was crystal clear water. The lake was nicknamed Lac de Gafsa or Gafsa Beach because it’s 25km from the Tunisian city of Gafsa.
