Spread out across the Bolivian highlands, at 4,000 meters, the city of El Alto is predominantly ochre-red, with thousands of low, matchbox-like brick houses with unfinished and unpainted facades lining the sides of dusty, unpaved roads.

They have also started to design their houses into bizarre shapes.

On this unique island in Japan, you can actually spend the day with several friendly long eared hares.

By day, a steady stream of tourists came, posing for pictures (and peeking in the windows) dressed in the free costumes provided by the visitor center - calico smocks with cameos, overalls and black jackets, even the spectacles - and wielding pitchforks of all sizes. They brought their own props, which included a prized Harley Davidson, a fleet of Stanley steam cars, and a herd of llamas.

This means that the moves have to be exacting or else it is sure destruction of the cube. They have some dramatic examples of that in the videos.
