Paulchen attending the Soap Box Rally in Bergamo

Paulchen and “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines”

Every year since 1955 some brave men fly down the walls of Citta Alta in their self constructed soapboxes. The first run is a speed challenge, the second one includes obstacles like a little jump, a water jump and a foam gun (2nd row left in the background). Unfortunately these “cars” are so fast-they flash by-taking pictures with an eclectic cat and crazy soap boxes was a bit difficult.

The Grappa Mobile was our favorite.

Take a look here: a fab video with all the special effects. As already mentioned: there is a foam gun. And some water. Enjoy.

And a second video from Polar TV.

Paulchen loved it. But I could not take him closer to the water or the foam. He preferred to stay next to the Salsiccia-Foodtruck. Enough said right?!
