Life with the Yawalapiti Tribe in Brazil

“Deep in the Brazilian heartland, where the upper reaches of the Amazon Basin dissolve into the central plateau, I had the opportunity to spend a few days in the village of joy. The mood was one of celebration. The Yawalapiti, one of the 14 tribes living inside the Xingu National Park, were preparing a new “quarup”, a ritual held over several days to honor in death a person of great importance to them. In its original form, the quarup was a funeral ritual intended to bring the dead back to life. Today, it is a celebration of life, death and rebirth”. – Ueslei Marcelino via Reuters

The New London Hot Spots? Cafés That Used to Be Public Toilets

A trip to the toilet is usually not associated with sandwiches, wine, or dates, but that’s changing in London. With real estate at a premium and the repurposing of old spaces in full effect, a trend has emerged: former public restrooms are reopening as cafés, restaurants, and boutiques. That’s right, forget the advice about not eating where people used to, um …

London has all kinds of history, and that extends to its loos. Take, for instance, WC – that’s the actual name of the former Victorian-era underground-station toilet in South London that opened in July. It now stands for wine and charcuterie.

WC, a wine bar that opened in July, is housed inside an abandoned underground toilet, with original walls intact. Much of the old décor remains, with the original floor mosaics and wall tiles, and even some of the old toilets in the restrooms (those are for display only). As Time Out London said in its review, “Down the wide stairs it still looks and feels like a Victorian convenience, albeit a sanitised one.”

WC co-founder Jayke Mangion, told AFP that “the government has been pushing the councils to use all empty places to generate revenues.”

If you want an even bolder toilet theme, just head to The Attendant in central London, where you can sit on a stool and have a salt- beef bagel while actually facing an original 1890s urinal. The toilet cisterns have been turned into flower pots.

1108 Couch Surfing USA: Three People, Two Dogs and One Futon

Three friends, two dogs, one futon: the perfect formula for a summer road trip. Reddit user thezim0090 recently shared this collection of photos from three of his friends, who decided to document a cross-country road trip by capturing lighthearted portraits of themselves seated with their two dogs on their van’s futon in the middle of amazing landscapes.

Starting in Vermont, the group made their way to places like Alaska and California over the course of four months. At each location, the friends set up a camera and tripod, piled onto the worn futon with their dogs, and struck casual poses in front of stunning mountains, lakes, fields, and canyons. Sharp-eyed viewers will notice that in each photo, whether the travel buddies are in Big Sur or near the Gulkana River, one of the three friends is looking away from the camera, adding a fun sense of action and continuity to their road trip mementos.

Alaskan Ice Cave

“This photographer is walking on thin ice after taking stunning photographs inside an Alaskan ice cave that could collapse at any moment. With it’s dazzling turquoise walls and and huge open spaces, it’s hard to imagine that this incredible frozen cavern was only formed at the beginning of 2012. But despite it’s seemingly mystical allure, the fascinating natural phenomena is at risk of collapsing in on itself without warning. Photographed by ice caver, Ron Gile, 55, the adventurer has known many caves collapse and disappear in his eight years exploring the local area”. – Caters News

Highline Festival in Monte Piana: Hammocks Miles above Ground

167 Highline Festival in Monte Piana: Hammocks Miles above Ground

Doesn’t taking a nap in a hammock outdoors sound lovely? Perhaps not when you’re hanging in the air, thousands of feet above ground, between two mountains in the Italian Alps! Which is exactly what these adventurous folks did during the International Highline Meeting in Monte Piana, Italy.

For this stunt a special highline set up was rigged which could carry the weight of all the people on the line at the same time. In total there were 22 in 16 hammocks on the main line. The line was around 50m above the ground and 50m in distance. The whole action lasted around 2 hours and the people involved were highline athletes attending on the festival. The action took place at around 2200 – 2400 m.a.s.l. and most of the people stayed up on the mountain during the whole festival for a whole week. (Photos by Sebastian Wahlhuetter Photography)
