U for …

Underground:

‘In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decree

Where Alph, the sacred river ran

Through caverns measureless to Man

Down to a sunless sea’

(Samuel Taylor Coleridge)

The Reed Flute Caves, where this picture was taken, aren’t that far from Xanadu. So, I wonder if this could be Mr. Coleridge’s ‘sunless sea’?

Underwater:

It used to be that this was out of bounds to me, for I don’t dive … I don’t even swim very well. But, with glass-bottomed boats and semi-submersibles, it’s possible.
