This week, Matt and I explored the island of Poveglia, one of the scariest and eeriest abandoned places we've ever been to. With over 160,000 deaths having taken place on the island, half of the island's soil is from human remains...

Hey, I´m so sorry to inform you that Poveglia is just an island with a former hospital and nursing home. They have given up the hospital due to financial reasons. There were other islands used for pestilence deaths. Venice never had a population over 100,000 and there never was a psychiatry located on Poveglia. These rumors about these terrible stories occured for about 15 years ago and are simply not true. have a nice day.

Definitely, these cities/places are the ones to be restored and don't let us forget what happened in the past. They are an example of what, we humans, are capable of

And i need money , can you just help me out by giving, the minimum amount you can, that'd be grateful, please if you can understand. My mother is using a formal phone , and I want to gift her a smartphone ( a good one ) , 🐚 she'll be so happy to see that. Please yes theory Thomas, Matt, Ammar, Zac, T.D ! 😊 Would love to hear a reply from you soon, even if you couldn't help, but a reply from you all will be delightful! Love from India guys.

You should come to Malaysia, we do have a lot of abandoned places. Of course it is haunted, an example you can search 'Villa Nabila, Johor Bahru, Malaysia'.
Insert creative reference I cant decide
