Walk of Faith Glass Pavement for Tourists Built on 4,690ft Mountain in China

I get vertigo just looking at it, but if you have nerves of steel, then you should definitely try out this newly built glass walkway in China, called the Walk of Faith.

I hope the glass is as thick as the Popemobile’s because this Glass Plank Road has been added 1,430 metres (4,690ft) up the Zhangjiajie Tianmen mountain. The translucent floor guarantees the tourists some unforgettable sightseeing experiences.

The mountain is very popular with tourists and is located in the Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park, five miles south of Zhangjiajie Village in the Hunan province.

N. Korea’s Mass Games or 100,000 Human Pixels

Photographer Sam Gellman recently returned from a 4-day trip to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea where he was lucky enough to witness and photograph the Mass Games in Pyongyang – a propaganda-filled synchronized performance done by 100,000 people.

“Photos from a four day trip in North Korea – September 9-12, 2011. Our guides were great but also quite conscious of every step we took. So some of these images are more documentary than anything else.”

“It was an amazing four days though and a unique opportunity to see how a country separated from the rest of the world functions. While the propaganda was more than I expected, there were some moments, like bumper cars at a theme park with soldiers and their kids, that were good reminders that people are people, whether in North Korea, the US, Hong Kong or anywhere.

World’s Biggest Roman-Catholic Cathedral – Ivory Coast

World’s Biggest Roman-Catholic Cathedral – Ivory Coast

The Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro (French: Basilique de Notre Dame de la Paix de Yamoussoukro) is a Roman Catholic minor basilica dedicated to Our Lady of Peace in Yamoussoukro, the administrative capital of Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast). The basilica was constructed between 1985 and 1989 at a cost of $300 million. The design of the dome and encircled plaza are clearly inspired by those of the Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican City, although it is not an outright replica. The cornerstone was laid on August 10, 1985, and it was consecrated on September 10, 1990, by Pope John Paul II.
