These Galapagos Island giant tortoises are truly huge creatures. Sebastian tries to inspire "craning" (or was it "stilting"?) imitating a bird's motions. Klaus, our Mountain Travel Sobek adventure travel guide, got the tortoise to lift it's head.
Writing Better Social Letters is an educational film staring two teenagers, Nora and her older brother Walter, who learn how to write an effective social letter. Nora can’t seem to get her thank-you letter right, so Walter becomes her letter writing tutor and helps her through explanation and examples of proper letter writing. He tells her that a letter should sound like her normal speaking voice instead of overly formal and stilted. When Nora wonders why she should even bother, Walter shows her why letter writing is important to keep in touch with friends and family. He shows her examples of all kinds of social letters: thank you cards, invitations, and get well cards. Nora begins to realize the value of keeping in touch with proper letter writing! By the end, Nora has ditched her ripped notebook paper and pencil for proper letter stock and a pen, and is busily writing a thank you letter to her grandparents, using proper letter writing etiquette.
Kyroman, or for those of you who don’t know, a 9ft gas wielding pyro-technic robot who frequents the clubs of Ibiza, recently had a bit of a ruck in Amnesia. Taunted by a merry reveller and his group of friends who tried to kick Kyroman’s stilts from underneath him and clamber onto his space-age suit at the packed Cream night, Kyroman reacted as all peeved robots would: spraying the offender in the face with dry ice and lumbering after the drunken lout and his friends as they tried to run off into the crowd. But it didn’t stop there. Said offender continued to taunt Kyroman and his very delicate get-up which prematurely activated his pyro-technic display, usually saved for the conclusion of his performance, right in the faces of the watching crowd as they looked on in horror. As Kyroman says, being a robot is ‘a tough job, but someone’s got to do it’. Ibiza 2008 is on Living Thursdays at 10pm. Check out www.livingtv.co.uk/ibiza for more info and behind the scenes gossip.

Cirque du Soleil special performances at the street parade for Expo2008 in Saragoza, Spain.
The quality of the source vides was already only okay to really bad. I actually improved on some a bit via applying some special filters. Well, I cannot turn iron into gold, but I attempted to make it at least to some shiny steel hehe.
This was how it all started, some circus folks walking on stilts at the city of Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec (Canada) in 1984. Now in 2008 it's a bit more of them... and a lot more successful ones as well.

http://www.fertur-travel.com/iquitos_tours.html Iquitos is in the heart of Peru's northern jungle, and the gateway to exploring the Amazon. Its the capital of Loreto, a region that makes up a third of Peru's territory. The city lies on the banks of a secondary branch of the Amazon, just a short distance from where it meets the Napo and Nanay Rivers. In the floating barrio of Beln canals replace streets, and homes are built on stilts or rafts that rise and fall with the river. Iquitos is the starting point for journeys to a range of forest lodges and jungle retreats. In this flooded landscape, people depend more on boats than on cars. It is said that Iquitos is the largest city in the world that cannot be reached by road. A zoo on the outskirts of town offers the chance to see the birds, animals and monkeys native to the region up close. Along the riverfront old colonial mansions built during the rubber boom mix with modern restaurants along a causeway covered in mosaic tiles. The most famous building is the Iron House, designed and constructed by Gustave Eiffel. Brought in pieces from Europe, it was the first pre-fabricated building in Latin America. Its been restored and is now a restaurant with views of the citys main square. Fertur Peru Travel.

http://www.fertur-travel.com/iquitos_tours.html Visit the floating neighborhood of Belen Beln sits on the banks of the Amazon River. Its the floating suburb of Iquitos. Residents have built their houses on wooden stilts or tethered rafts In times when the river rises, mooring cables keep the rafts from floating away and everyone moves upstairs. Most people in Belen fish for a living, but when the river falls they use the surrounding flood plain to grow crops. All year round the river remains the main means of transport. People get around in boats or canoes. The market is the main attraction, a center for jungle food, medicines and bizarre herbal remedies, where you can buy a piranha for lunch or sample an exotic potion brewed by a shaman. After wandering through the stalls canoes can take you on a tour of the canals, for a glimpse of a life lived on the waters of the Amazon. Fertur Peru Travel.

VANCOUVER LIVE BIRD SHOW ALTERNATIVE TO JUGGLERS, STILT WALKERS, MAGICIANS
Rome, 1992. Mijn begrafenis zal plaatsvinden in besloten kring, met enkel diegenen die me geholpen hebben met mijn strijd voor gerechtigheid. Mijn moeder mag zeker niet aanwezig zijn en mag me niet meer zien na mijn dood. Deze woorden schreef Rita Atria in haar dagboek.
Op 5 november 1991, verscheen de zeventienjarige Siciliaanse Rita Atria voor de anti-maffia rechter om de moord op haar vader en broer te wreken, beide ‘mannen van eer’ in de beruchtte maffiagroep Cosa Nostra. Voor de eerste keer brak een jonge vrouw, lid van een maffiafamilie, de wet van de stilte, de omerta.
Vanaf die dag zijn haar dagen geteld. Ze heeft niet meer dan 9 maanden nog te leven. Verstoten door haar moeder en vriend, bedreigd en verstoten door het hele dorp is Rita gedwongen Sicilië te verlaten. Ze duikt onder in Rome, waar anti-maffia magistraat Paolo Borsellino haar onder zijn vleugels neemt en steunt in haar strijd om gerechtigheid. Gebaseerd op het verhaal van Rita Atria en rechter Paolo Borsellino.
