The day after tomorrow
Tragic destiny that the one of the former spa resort of Epecuén: While heavy rain was falling in the area for a few weeks, the dyke who was protecting the city from the lake that surround it broke. In a few days, the city was completely drawn under ten meters of water and its inhabitants were obliged to escape. It was the 10th of november 1985. After 30 years passed engulfed under the lake, dryness made Epecuén surfaced again, offering us an incredible sight of desolation both terrifying and wonderful.
