Brazilian Expats Launch Project That Is Going To Change The Face Of Tourism In Berlin

In addition to observing the German city from a totally different and unique point of view, people soon will be able to show the world their hometowns through this new look.

Nicole Plauto and Ligia Fascioni have joined their talents and expertise to found, a company that will offer a very different way of bringing home a souvenir from the German capital. The project brings together storytelling, illustration, photography, culture, social media, tourism and history, as well as appreciation and respect for diversity.

Nicole and Ligia found out that some exotic people walking through the city actually came from the Andromeda Galaxy, where they all have creative professions. The Wesen, as they call these exotic creatures, often take a sabbatical at other planets: the experience broadens their minds and help them generate new ideas. From time to time an expedition full of new Wesen arrives through a secret portal.

Nicole and Ligia are teaching the Wesen how to use social media in order to help them interact with humans, since they normally communicate only through telepathy. They took the form of plush toy arts to absorb experiences more efficiently, as well as being more friendly and comfortable to humans.

The first assisted expedition is composed by the sarcastic Helga, a Cosmic History teacher; the most intelligent Jean-Pierre, an Artificial Geniosity developer and the fun Mia, Choreographer of News. Their day-to-day life in Berlin can be followed by Facebook and Instagram. Humans can ask questions and interact as well.

The entrepreneurs are developing a cloning technique, so that in the near future, people can take their favorite Wesen home and help them to acquire new experiences. Also, new expeditions can arrive at any moment.

Berlin will never be the same. You should check it out.

The Queen Of The Night, A Very Special Kind Of Orchid Cactus, Blooms Again At The St. Petersburg Botanical Garden

You have to stay up late to enjoy the opening of this extraordinary cactus, which is shaped like a majestic waterlily. If you are an early riser and usually early to bed – this plant is not for you! The queen of the night cactus flowers between dusk and dawn – for us she is the highlight of the party season.

A “Queen of the Night” cactus is in bloom at the St. Petersburg Botanical Garden, Russia. It is a night-flowering cactus that blooms with a great sense of drama. It blooms once a year for several hours only. The plant puts all of its reproductive energy into a single brief fling. It’s quite an extraordinary performance.

The flower is huge, deeply fragrant and glows as white as a full moon. Still, it’s a precarious way to make a living, and the true Queen, Selenicereus grandiflorus, is not often seen in cultivation.


A Walk In Nanjing’s ‘Love Tunnel’

A stretch of railway track in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing has become an unlikely venue for wedding photos and young couples’ strolls thanks to its romantic location in a natural tunnel formed by trees.

In summer, sunlight pours through the canopy and onto the track, which is managed by a local mining company.

Few trains run through the tunnel, but the company still warns people to be careful.


This Residential Complex Is Fully Submerged In Natural Sea Of Green

Eager for greener surroundings? This might be the place for you.

A residential area in Guiyang, in southwest China’s Guizhou Province, almost seems to disappear among the trees and greenery, enabling its residents to enjoy nature up close, even while living in an apartment block.

The locals say the trees are a natural barrier against noise and air pollution.


The Oddest Subway Station In China

Chinese netizens have dubbed Caojiawan subway station on Line 6 of the Chongqing Metro as the “oddest station.”

The mysterious station in southwest China’s Chongqing municipality was planned with three access points. Only one entry point of three has been opened so far.

One exit was opened in October 2015. It may not be that easy to find though: It’s surrounded by clumps of weed and muddy alleys. No main roads are directly linked to the exit.

The two unopened exits are even more difficult to find, as they are in a completely isolated wasteland. Locals can spot these entrances only if they are standing directly in front of the doors.

Hidden in an obscure location, a lone elevator near the two unopened access points are yet to open.

“Usually there are rare passengers. It is quite normal to see no passengers here,” a subway employee told Chongqing Morning Post on Monday.


This Small Village In Indonesia Is Literally Made Out Of Rainbows


Kampung Pelangi, which literally translates to Rainbow Village, has to be one of the most colourful villages in the world, let alone in Indonesia. The village, which is home to 232 houses, is splashed in a series of bright colours and decorated with murals. Kampung Pelangi was recently given a government-funded makeover in a bid to make it more tourist-friendly — and it looks like it’s working.

The Mudmen Of The Western Highlands – The Terrifying Tribe From A Remote Part Of Papua New Guinea

Jeremy Hunter/Exclusivepix Media

Papua New Guinea is a land of Wig-Schools, Wig-Teachers and WigMen, impenetrable rain-forests, sweet potatoes and pigs. A land of the Cus-Cus, the Cassowary and thirty-eight species of Birds of Paradise. A land without sheep, goats, cows or milk.

Jeremy Hunter/Exclusivepix Media

A land where there are no donkeys, horses or mules. No bicycles, mopeds and few cars; virtually no restaurants, bars, shops, electricity or roads. It is a land where there is no recreational sex, where a new-born girl is called a Shovel, a boy an Axe and where many adults have no birth certificates. It is perhaps one of the most untouched lands on earth.

Jeremy Hunter/Exclusivepix Media

This bizarre way of life is found in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, a country comprising more than 2000 indigeneous clans, including the Mudmen of the Waghi Valley. To find this clan, you need to travel to the Highlands town of Mt Hagen. Although it’s the third largest town in the country it has a reputation of being “the wild frontier” of the Highlands and more often is referred to as simply Hagen, a German name that acknowledges the presence of Lutheran missionaries who settled in the area almost a century ago.

Jeremy Hunter/Exclusivepix Media

Compared with the intense heat and humidity of the coastal region, Hagen has a comfortable alpine climate and though it rains an average of 3800mm a year, there are few mosquitoes and consequently no malaria. Throughout Papua New Guinea, language is an issue.

Jeremy Hunter/Exclusivepix Media

More than 800 different languages are spoken, 12% of the world’s indigeneous languages, and very often adjoining clans are unable to understand the language spoken by their neighbours just a few kilometres away. Some of these languages are spoken by just 5000. For centuries the Highlands peoples of Papua New Guinea fought over land, women and pigs. Sorcery and battle skills could elevate a clan to Bigmanship, where the bigger the “presentation”, the bigger the man. Clans therefore would paint their bodies and create fearsome masks as part of their psy.
