Ships in the Desert Stranded Without Water
Have you ever wanted to walk across the bottom of the River, Lake, or Ocean to see all the boats and ships that have sunk? The Aral Sea was once the world’s fourth-largest saline body of water. It has been steadily shrinking since the 1960’s, after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet Union irrigation projects. And it had already been starved of nearly 30 yrs. of water by 1989. And now it’s almost gone leaving a desert full of old shipwrecks.
Really quite unreal, the pictures you just saw are at the BOTTOM of what was once the fourth largest salt water sea in the world.
