    A Colour Pic trip to fun, relaxing and peaceful places around the world.

  • Description

    Various locations of events.
    Good shots of traffic at Piccadilly Circus in London, crowds walking across London Bridge, M/Ss of news headlines on posters. In New York, United States of America, we see a cop directing traffic on a busy street, people walking along busy streets, the United Nations building, good aerial views of the city skyscrapers. In Central Park (?) old men play chess in the open air. Brief shots of the arch at Greenwich Village; view of the Hudson River and Manhattan (?) from beside a bridge. People on a boat trip around the bay look at skyscrapers - good shots of the skyline.

    Various shots at Freedom Land amusement park - street entertainers, funfair rides, cable car ride, cowboy on a horse throwing lassoes in a western street. Back in New York a couple get into a horse-drawn carriage and are taken for a ride along the city streets and through Central Park.

    Cut to Vienna, where another couple are taking a fiacre ride through the city, passing several famous buildings and sights. In Athens we see the Greek ruins (Parthenon of Pericles? Acropolis?) and tourists trolling round them. Cut to tulips in the Keukenhoff gardens near Lisse in Holland / Netherlands. Several more shots of beautiful flowers. A woman in Dutch costume chats to a tourist. Brief shots of white ducks on a pond with yellow fluffy ducklings. Cut to scenes from a carnival procession of elaborate flower-covered floats in a Dutch town in the rain.

    In San Remo in Italy we see another flower carnival with stylish decorated floats moving through the town. People throw flowers at each other and seem to be dismantling the blooms from the floats. Several shots in Mexico of the ancient Inca / Toltec pyramids; two men climb up one of them. At Acapulco we see people enjoying themselves at a holiday resort, swimming in a pool, sipping exotic drinks served in pineapples and watermelons, being serenaded by three men with guitars. Several shots of people doing water sports.
