A group of artists from the U.S. came together to created these hand crafted '"swimming cities" out of found objects, scrap metal and a Mercedes motor even. These vessels navigated the Adriatic Sea from Slovenia to Venice in May 2009. They remind me of this scene from Kusturica's Time of the Gypsies.
Maybe hippies and gypsies have a lot of things in common.
