Rotel

August 26, 2008

How many times have you caught yourself saying, wouldn’t it be great if they could build a hotel that moved. Roll-up the Rotel the new dimension in coach/hotel accommodation bracket. Due to it’s modern sleek design this beauty can rock up a planet saving 1mpg. The Rotel Tour group called Das Rollende Hotel (”The Rolling Hotel”) offers a separate room for each passenger. There are several buses, especially designed to tour certain parts of the world.

La Tomatina

August 26, 2008

If you’re one of those people that loved starting food fights, you’re going to love La Tomatina festival. every year, on the last Wednesday of August, thousands of people gather on the streets of Bunol, Spain and throw over one hundred metric tons of tomatoes at each-other. Tradition says the tomato fight of La Tomatina is supposed to begin when someone manages to climb up a two-story high greased wooden pole and grab a piece of ham, but since that takes forever the battle starts all of a sudden.

During La Tomatina people just come at you and tear the shirt right off you, even if you’re a woman so don’t act all surprised or scared. The whole tomato battle lasts for an hour aftewhich everyone goes to Bunol River to wash up. If any stragglers are still on the streets after the fight, the locals are more than happy to hose them down.

La Tomatina helps keep the towns streets clean through the acid properties of the tomatoes. More here.

Zombie walk

August 25, 2008

zombie walk also known as zombie mob is a bit like “flash mob” except it is an organized public gathering of people who dress up in zombie costumes. Usually taking place in an urban centre, the zombies then make their way around the city streets and through shopping malls in a somewhat orderly zombie fashion and often limping their way towards a local cemetery or other public space. Check it out here.
