#StrangePlanet: Travel Trivia

Truth is stranger than fiction.

Here are five travel factoids to help prove it:

Sticky Situation: Thousands of pieces of chewed gum line 70-foot-long Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo, California. 

Bald Dogs: A worker rubs sunscreen daily on some 12 Mexican hairless dogs roaming the grounds of the Dolores Olmedo Museum in Mexico City.

View the Loo: Water cascades from 10,000 toilet urinals and seats, creating an art installation in Foshan, Guangdong Province, China.

Historical Baggage: The seemingly illogical airport code for Chicago’s O’Hare International—ORD—is based on the plot of land for which it was named, Orchard Field.

She Ain’t Heavy: At the annual Wife Carrying World Championships in Sonkajärvi, Finland, contestants are said to need “strength, tenacity, eroticism, and rhythm.”
