A Blue Moon for New Years Eve

| 1 Comment
moon.jpgA New Year's Eve blue moon will be visible in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America and Africa (in Australia and Asia, the full moon does not show up until New Year's Day, making January a blue moon month for them). Blue moons happen every 2.5 years, but the last time one landed on New Years Eve was 1990.

The moon won't actually be blue, the term means it's a second full moon in one month. I'm not very superstitious, but I'm going to take this as a good omen for the new year, maybe even the whole decade.

La Gioconda or the Mocha Lisa?

A total of 3,604 cups of coffee, each shaded by various amounts of cream or left black, were arranged to form a Mona Lisa. The 20-foot-long, 13-foot-wide work was created by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, for the Rocks Aroma festival, a gathering for coffee lovers in Sydney, Australia.

The Longest Way 1.0

The Longest Way 1.0 - one year walk/beard grow time lapse from Christoph Rehage

November 9th 2007 - November 13th 2008
One year on foot - 4646km through China

Additional info by Christoph Rehage:
  • I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the desert of Gobi, and then decided to stop walking for now.
  • All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi has been completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
  • I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.
  • Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.
  •  The songs I used in the video are 1) Zhu Fengbo - "Olive Tree" and 2) The Kingpins - "L'aventurier" - visit the Kingpins website if you want to know more, they are very cool I think.
  • This is not a strict "1 pic a day" video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.
  • The core of this project is in fact my website  where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.
