Happy February 29th! Leap Year happens every four years so make that shit count by doing something really really important today, like wasting an extra hour or two on the internet. That’s what I plan to do.
Apparently there are no Leap Year Museums. Disappointment all around. I was going to make my own little museum and teach you guys all about official Leap Year History, like how the planet’s year is actually 365.24219 days long and Julius Caesar fixed all the calendar confusion by adding a day and only 5 million babies miss out on annual drama queen birthday cakes, but my shitty old computer ate my words and swept them under a dusty floppy disk. Oh well, you get the picture.
Instead I bring you Miniatürk, one of the world’s largest miniature parks! Is it possible to be large and small all at the same time? Maybe this guy knows. Anyway, who cares about seeing the real thing when you have its teeny tiny version. Over half of the 105 models (1/25th scale) are structures found in Istanbul. So save some money and just go to Miniatürk. Besides there are other historic treats like the Temple of Artemis and the Mausoleum of Maussollos as well as recreations of modern things like airports and highways. So again save your money…cancel the car rental and plane ticket…just go straight to Miniatürk.
This place has nothing to do with Leap Year, but we are all need an escape from our lives…I mean how I am going to get through this extra day without looking at shit like an outdoor museum full of miniature buildings? Seriously.
