Amongst a Sea of Eggs
England

How to turn a trip to Birmingham into a giant hunting game, just add 101 oversized and decorated eggs spread thoughout the city center. The event is called the "Big Egg Hunt" and is in its second year (but it's first year on tour). The eggs are sometimes in clusters, sometimes alone, sometimes inside, sometimes out, sometimes easily found, sometimes not. Birmingham was it's second stop, coming from London before heading to Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow and finally back to London.

The eggs have been decorated by artists like Richard Kirwan, Annie Kevans and Billy Childish while others feature childrens charaters like Thomas the Tank Engine, Peppa Pig and Sponge Bob Square Pants. So somewhere through out the city center there must be an egg that you like, you just have to find it. This is all being done to raise money for the charity Action for Children by auctioning off the eggs after the tour is complete.

Over a cold 4 hour period we managed to find over 80 of the 101 eggs we just ended up not having time to hunt for the rest. For anyone interested this sea contains 46 eggs but how many can you see?

    More About Europe

    Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
