I carried about a clipping of the Oregon Vortex about 10 years before I got to see it, it was worth it too!

I have not been to a lot of strange places. We tend to go to the more touristy places so we don't see a lot of unusual things. We did go to a mystery spot in Michigan once, that was pretty cool. Things were hanging up side down in one spot without being held by anything, it felt like your body was leaning forward when you stood in this one spot even though the ground below you was flat. It was pretty crazy and cool.

Things were hanging upside down without anything holding to them, that is weird, may be they are hold in place by invisible string or magnetic levitation force. That mystery spot does sound strange as well as crazy, does it has a name ?? May be i can take a look in the future when i visit Michigan.

The city I live in can be pretty strange. Moncton, New Brunswick is built along the banks of the Petitcodiac River which flows either east or west depending on what time of day it is. It flows into the Bay of Fundy which has the highest tides in the world. When the tide comes in it flows sixty kilometers upriver. Here's a view of the tidal bore coming in: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRsFSZTfEWk

Cool, i will check it out myself with the link you provided. Thank for the sharing. It must be fun to watch water flows upriver instead of down stream. Cool place to visit.

Where is Your village located? Pal! If there is no electricity supply to your village or no lamp-posts are allowed to build in your village, then it will look dark during night time, i am sure you understand that well. Everything around will not be able to see clearly in a moonless night including the tree, i can understand that situation you are in, it is no wonder you think it is a strange place. Thank for your response.

I imagined standing on the Equator and due to it being zero degrees I thought it would be hot there. Funnily enough whilst in Sumatra I take a bus and it stops off for sightseeing at the Equator. It was a high spot so it was cool there. Whilst in the Maldives I flew on a tiny plane from Male to Gan. Amusingly I got a certificate to say I had passed the Equator. That had made me laugh. Gan was an old British airbase connected to other islands with a series of bridges up the island chain. At 11 in the morning at Male Airport five flights are meant to leave out of one gate. A man said the Germans will go first because they have their towels waiting on the runway. The next week I got to enjoy seeing that happen again. What a funny place.

If you are in Equator spot at sea level, then its air will be hot and humid. But if you happen to stay at high altitude or near sea shore, the climate is mild and temperature usually is cooler than usual somewhere like those you found in temperate zone. It is not surprising at all. Thank for your response.

I think that the strangest and most beautiful was the home of Cesar Manrique at the foundation that bears his name on the island of Lanzarote of the Canary Islands. This is where I wish I could post pictures as the home was built into lava flows and finished in white. A really good work of art with pieces of his art on display.

If you search Ceasar Manrique Volcano Home go to spotcoolstuf.com and you will see some cool shots of this fabulous studio home but they don't do it justice, it is better that it looks as it leaves out the studio area with so much of his artistry. Hope you take a look at the work of this fantastic architect, artist,visonary.

The strangets place I've visited isn't a town, but a museum. When I lived in Vienna, we lived about 5 minutes from the Bezirksmuseum Penzing, the museum for the part of Vienna called Penzing. They were open every Sunday and shared the building with the Brick museum. They were only open two Sundays a month, so I dragged my very hang-overish flatmate along one day. It was strange, lots of bricks. Interesting in a weird way :-)

Sound like a fun place to hang around for a while, lot of bricks to see at the very least. It sure is kind of weird and strange.

The strangest place I've been to is a small island off Guernsey in the Channel Islands, called Sark, they have absolutely NO cars there, the only way you can get around is by bicycle or by horse!

The island owner may not want to have car around his island, in order to curb the tailpipe exhaust pollution from the island, it sound like a great place to live without any car around.
