Can you actually stay in a house with 1.5 meter WIDE by 10 meters TALL?

A house calls attention in Madre de Deus, Brazil; it have three floors and even the builder had faith in what he built. Helenita, the designer and the owner of the house who is now living happily inside.



At first, the municipality refused, but in the end with the plan allowed the construction, that became a touristic spot of the small town of 12 thousand people.

There are benches in front of the house where the tourists can spent some time watching the unusual building. Some, more curious, ask to go inside and take pictures, in which Helenita (woman in yellow) allows. The couple now have plans to build a 4th floor, “open, for leisure, with barbecue and everything”.

Angel Falls at Venezuela is the world’s biggest waterfalls with a height of 979m!

The Natives in Venezuela had known about the “Salto Angel” since the beginning of time. Then United States pilot Jimmie Angel was flying over the area in 1935 when he landed on the top of a lone mountain in search of gold. His plane got stuck in the boggy jungle on top of the mountain and he noticed a pretty impressive waterfall plunging thousands of feet down. He wasn’t too happy about the 11 mile hike back to civilization, and his plane remained stuck and rusting upon the mountain as a monument to his discovery. Soon the whole world would know about the falls, which came to be known as Angel Falls, after the pilot who “discovered” them.

Downtown Houston, Texas: This mirrored-surface public restroom is all but invisible on the outside….

but inside, the two-way glass construction makes it seem like you’re right out in the open.
