London, Paris, Prague, and Rome are incomparable cities and are some of the most sought out tourist destinations in Europe, and while these places are definitely worth seeing in your lifetime, during a trip to Europe, take some time stray off the traditional path and instead spend time on the road less traveled by visiting some of the continent’s most prized yet hidden gems.

Allegedly, Serge Ibaka, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo if you were wondering, plays a mighty nice game of basketball as a power forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder. But I can’t really attest to that because when I see the man on television, I’m usually paying more attention to his looks as opposed to his athletic capabilities (What? I’m just keeping it real).

I always say drug dealers are just intelligent people — who are misguided. A few cocaine bosses in Spain just proved me right once again after they smuggled cocaine from Colombia to Spain in the form of fake Manolo Blahniks. This worked for years.
According to the New York Post, the operation was run by a Colombian man and his wife, who molded paste-like cocaine into the shape of shoes “carefully sculpted to look like the high-heeled, luxury women’s footwear” and placed a Manolo Blahnik label on it. When the fake shoes arrived in Spain, several men would be in charge of returning the paste to its original white powder form and distributing the drugs.
The Telegraph said each coked-up heel had a street value of 50,000 euros a pair, or about $69,000. I don’t even know how people come up with these ideas but they certainly get points for creativity.
I wonder if the shoes were cute.
