Regular-reader Luis V is going to England next week, and I think I know why. I suddenly have the urge to check out
Russian London landmarks, too. What, with all the beautification they’re doing lately. Who wouldn’t want to sight see in London Town?
Headline at Daily Mail Online: Fascinatingly flexible: Contortionist causes a stir by wrapping herself around London landmarks
Here are a few lines from the article (how many “no shit” moments do you count?):
The 24-year-old, real name Julia Gunthel demonstrated her impressive flexibility fitting snugly into a telephone box with her leg wrapped around her head.
She said: ‘I had a fantastic time in London practising my poses in phone boxes and in front of the National Gallery.’
‘A lot of people stopped on the streets and asked to take their picture with me, I think they were very surprised, which was great, everyone was very excited.’
Zlata caused a stir outside the Houses Of Parliament, the Horse Guards parade and the National Gallery taken the attention of the tourists away from the London attractions.
She said:’They all forgot about the sight-seeing and just wanted to take pictures of me instead, which was very fun for me!’
Wait a second. Do I smell a publicity stunt?
