The past few months I’ve been working at Apple on the Places feature of iPhoto, http://www.apple.com/ilife/iphoto/#places .

One of fascinating aspects of this project, was getting the opportunity to expand my geographical knowledge,

as well as being exposed to unusual tourists attractions people might like to take pictures at. I never knew this places existed!

Here are a few touristy places that even though they are odd, people enjoy visiting them.

1) Leila’s Hair Museum – all of the framed wreath objects in the picture below are made out of human hair! Ew, serious gag reflex!

2) Sedlec Ossuary – known for having a massive chandelier made of human bones which, not surprising, was featured in Dungeons and Dragons the movie.

3) National Museum of Funeral History – this is a direct quote from their website, “The collection of coffins represents the single largest assemblage of fantasy coffins outside of Ghana.”   Not only was I surprised that Ghana has the largest collection of fantasy coffins in the world, I was also surprised that someone’s idea for a fantasy coffin is a giant chicken.

4) Wannado City – is an indoor theme park giving children the opportunity to try out a wide variety of professions.  Here are a few of the jobs children are lucky enough to get the opporunity to try out At Wannado: Bailiff, Supermarket Stockperson, Bank Customer (that’s not a job!), Anestheologist, Boom Operator, Wardrobe (I hope they are referring to a Wardrobe Designer because they just typed Wardrobe) and, my personal favorite, Witness.

Unfotunately, I never received permission to add the Neverland Ranch to Apple’s database, sorry MJ.

Speaking of amusing and strange Apple related stories, did anyone see Woz do the worm on national tv?  I love that guy!  Let’s just hope he beats that bunny!
