Skinny Life!

I love to travel. And what I love MOST about traveling is seeing how other people live – so when you are in Tokyo, for example, you see streets like this:


Tokyo is one of the world’s coolest cities, and Japan is one of the greatest countries in the world…but this is a fact:

The US has 300-million people. Japan has 150-million. The ENTIRE land mass of Japan is the size of MONTANA!

Nice Stairs!

The World’s All-time Skinniest House!

Well, I think I found it – according to an online article, THIS could be the world’s skinniest house – in Poland!
