An exhibition in Berlin examines modern ghost towns and cities. This is always a favorite topic here at SpookyLibrarians HQ, so we highly recommend both the article and the accompanying photo gallery. Detroit is among the places mentioned, and Environmental Graffiti takes a look at the amazing Art Deco skyscrapers which are now mostly abandoned in that city.

Meanwhile, Google Sightseeing lists the towns around the world with an official population of one. Yes. One!

If you’re more in the mood to celebrate with lots of people, check out the Viking Solstice Festival in Iceland this weekend…or the annual Duct Tape Festival (complete with parade!) in Ohio.
