On Ghost Towns: Abandoned Buildings and Deserted Cities

Ghost towns are not for everybody, but I totally love them. For this video I visited the following locations:
– Epecuen (Argentina): A popular lakeside resort in the roaring ‘20s, and then, disaster stroke… The abandoned slaughterhouse and adjacent dead forest are a perfect location for a horror movie.
– Gbecon (Benin): A.k.a “Les Comptoirs Coloniaux de Gbecon”. Among the fantastic deserted beaches of Grand Popo, a colonial outpost that was used to trade slaves, spices and other goods.
– Estancia San Gregorio (Chile): Truly at the end of the world, an overwhelming mixture of abandoned colonial village and Antarctica outpost. This ghost town is chilling: dilapidated colonial buildings from 1876 on a deserted beach with rusting wrecks of 19th-century British steamships. Watch the sunset and enjoy the total darkness, total solitude and total silence.
– Ada Foah (Ghana): A beach cemetery, an old Presbyterian church, the ruins of a colonial fort, and some dilapidated colonial buildings hosting wild hogs. The presence of humans (i.e. kids asking for money and adults using the fort as a public toilet) spoils the atmosphere.
