Lady of Orda Cave by Natalia Avseenko and Phototeam.PRO
Two-time world champion free diver Natalia Avseenko ventured deep into Ordynskaya Cave in Perm, Russia… one of the longest and biggest underwater gypsum caves in the world, dressed as the mythical Lady of the Cave, a spirit who protects divers inside the “natural cathedral”.
Qiandao Lake is a man-made lake located in Chun’an County, China, where archeologists have discovered in 2001 ruins of an underwater city. The city is at a depth of 26-40 meters and was named “Lion City”. There would have been 290 000 people living in this city during more than 1300 years. Touristic expeditions are projected.

There are men who are as much women as their mothers, and women who are as much men as their fathers - because the soul has no gender.
- Queen Christina of Sweden (1626 - 1689)
The orignal quote is in Swedish and says: "Det finns män som är lika mycket kvinnor som sina mödrar, och kvinnor som är lika mycket män som sina fäder - ty själen har inget kön." It could be argued that the last word should be “sex” and not “gender” since the Swedish word “kön” applies to both, but I thought that in this context the word “gender” fit better.
But however it is with that, this quote was said more than three hundred years ago. Think about that.
