one upping Moses...

so there is a city buried under a lake in Bulgaria. it's an ancient city, and now archaeologists, scientists, politicians, and architects want to unearth it and make it a tourist destination.

this all involves the building of massive dikes and a huge pump system in the middle of this lake.  you'll approach it by boat, and there 20+ feet below the water level will be this ancient city.  

i can't say this isn't a totally awesome idea, but it just reeks of cost overruns, unplanned disaster, and the arrogance of human engineering.  either way i'd totally go.  go read about it at Eikongraphia.
