This Town in Australia Looks Totally Deserted. But Turns Out Their Residents Are Just Brilliant.

The town of Coober Pedy in northern South Australia (wait, it gets even more confusing) is the opal capital of the world. Nearly 95% of the world’s opal supply comes from the local mines. But, if you were to walk into this mining town of 3,000 people, you wouldn’t see a bustling little town. You’d actually see less than half of its population.
Although the perfectly regulated temperature seems like a good idea, the thought of living underneath a desert in a series of caves is still a hard pill to swallow.
