Eels in the water?
Has anyone else been here? At one point, I looked down and saw about a hundred strange slithering creatures in the water. Usually, I saw gaping mouths and slimy twisting. It creeped me out the maximum level. I couldn’t figure out what they were, and also I didn’t want to lean over the edge too long. The idea of falling in was the stuff of horrors!

I heard there were two Medusa head statues hidden around the cisterns. I went down here with the mission to find both of them… I've always been a big gamer, D&D guy, etc etc, so having a mission like that was very exciting for me. I found both of them and had many other “events” along the way. I'll save those for future posts and photos from this incredible underground structure.
