Strange facts: Did you know…?
1# Did you know that when the historic Plaza Hotel in NYC opened in 1907, a room cost $2.50 per night, that is the same as $64.26 today.! The Plaza now charges over $1,000/night…!
2# Did you know that originally, the Eiffel Tower was going to be erected in Barcelona, but the project was rejected because citizens thought it was an eyesore…!!!!!
3# Did you know that the world’s longest place name has 85 letters and is located in New Zealand.
Near Porangahau in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand there is an unassuming hill known as "Taumata whakatangi hangakoauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu", which translates into English as "the place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, known as 'landeater’, played his flute to his loved one." Locals simply call it Taumata Hill…!
