Ghost Town Being Swallowed by Dunes
Some travelers visited Kolmanskop, a ghost town in Nambia, that was once a hub for diamond fever in the first part of the twentieth century. As the diamond craze died following World War I, the population of the town slowly dwindled until it was abandoned in the 1950's.
Since then, Kolmanskop has wasted away, being ever so slowly swallowed up in the shifting sands of the desert dunes.
Eerie pictures and video.
