Editor's Note: I'm writing unique stories related to any country that I choose by random. Every day (whenever I feel like writing), I will have my own take on interesting topics and curiousities that captivate my interest. If you are interested to know if your country will be featured, check out the list.

Seeing a mind-boggling sinkhole for the first time baffles my mind because of the fact it really gets into your head. I really don't what cause it but seeing a big hole from up above as if the Earth was drilled perfectly.

If you see pictures on the Internet about these sinkholes, eyebrows are raised because most of us would think that these are just Photoshop tricks but as mysterious as the crop circles in southern England. But in recent years, a huge sinkhole was reported to have swallowed a three-story building in Guatemala City. Could this be a revenge of the Mayan gods?


The country takes a terrible beating from the torrential rains and the strong Caribbean storms plus the fact that the floodwaters have made the ground so soft that you can probably sink in to the ground. According to experts, "Sinkholes are natural depressions that can form when water-saturated soil and other particles become too heavy and cause the roofs of existing voids in the soil to collapse."

No one is still sure about the cause of the 2010 Guatemalan monster sinkhole that looks like lifted from the pages of a blockbuster Hollywood disaster movie. Because of Agatha's tempest, this gargantuan hole opened up from out of nowhere.


If you have seen King Leonidas kicked the Persians' arses to the endless then you'll know what you feel if you fell down from it. Trust me, you don't want to join the Devil underneath unless if you are embarking on an adventure to the center of the earth.

I wonder if a hole stretch to the other side of the world then you will probably get out to the opposite end, let's say Kyoto, Japan! If you fell from that hole then does it mean you will fly out of the hole in the opposite end? We may never know for sure.
