What a clever idea! Tiny Urban Kitchen made a series of tiny pizza flags representing countries they have visited. Series of Outstanding edible Pizza flags made by Jen.
Jen decided to reflect upon the last decade of travel by recreating the flags of visited countries as pizzas. (Check out the recipe)

Whether we like to be organized or not, Calendars are rather a necessary thing that is seen every day in many different versions. Whether it is on your cellphone, wristwatch or on your office wall, Calendars cannot be hidden from and they will continue to be.
In this collection we gathered 7 Cool and Creative Calendar designs which add a little extra for the boring calendars we see every day. Who knows, perhaps some of these Calendar designs may even entice a few towards actually using them.

2. Camera Calendar:

4. Tape calendar:
5. Press Calendar:
The Press Calendar is a life time calendar; after every 28 years it’s used like a new calendar. The same cycle repeats for days, weeks and months for the next quarter century.

You can’t escape. Maybe you thought that going to Egypt, Israel, China or Malaysia would spare you the sight of the golden arches. Maybe you thought you could see the iconic structures of Rome, cover every inch of the Louvre, or sightsee in historic Vienna without being jarred by the realization that McDonald’s is a world leader in globalization. But you certainly saw quickly that you were wrong.
Billions and billions served, it’s true. Sometimes the biggest fast food chain in the world makes an attempt to blend, but when they can get away with it, that yellow M towers over the scenery, a beacon of fake cheese and pressed meats, omnipresent, infinitely adaptable, and painfully conspicuous, no matter how thoroughly entrenched in centuries old architecture the branch may be.
The Economist claims that its Big Mac Index (which compares prices of the sandwich by nation) “is arguably the world’s most accurate financial indicator to be based on a fast-food item.” McDonald’s, it seems is everywhere, and not going away.
Welcome to McDonald’s. May I take your New World Order?

McDonald's, Plaza de Armas Cusco, Peru
5. Cusco, Peru: Historic Plaza de Armas in Cusco was once capital of the Incan Empire, site where hero TÃºpac Amaru II was executed, and see those arches in the upper right? They're not quite golden, but maybe the rich Incan history makes up for that. Above: guillenperez Below: RogÃ©rio Ferraz

Bavarian style McDonald's in Leavenworth, WA, USA
8. Leavenworth, Washington, USA: In 1962, a project was undertaken to transform the economically bereft Leavenworth into a Bavarian village to boost tourism. Witness perhaps the only Bavarian style McDonald's in existence, but I bet they're still serving Quarter Pounders instead of the Hamburger Royal TS. Photo: internets_diary

McDonald's at the Martinstor in Freiburg, Germany
14. Freiburg, Germany: My friend, trilingual translator extraordinaire Valeria Otero says of this Micky D's, "Martinstor is one of the gates to the Altstadt (the old city), Freiburg's old city center is very well preserved and they have very strict rules regarding building's faÃ§ades: supposedly, they must remain untouched. That makes the McDonald's sign stand out even more!" Photo: Flominator
