Morning rush just like any other day. Got everything? Papers, mobile phone, keys and… a towel – great, it’s time to go! Apparently that’s how the morning of the 25th of May looks like for every fan of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Is there anyone who doesn’t know this exceptional novel by Douglas Adams? The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a pentalogy whose fame and renown reach back to the year 1980. This fantastic parody of the sci-fi genre is nowadays practically part of the literary canon. The complicated and innovative story begins with the destruction of planet Earth because it has to make a space for a new intergalactic highway project. The hero of the narrative, a fairly ordinary but likeable terrestrial named Arthur Dent, has the good fortune to hitch a ride on a spaceship with the help of his friend Ford Prefect (allegedly an unemployed actor who turns out to be an extraterrestrial) and escape the site of the disaster.
Well and why do fans of Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy carry a towel every May 25th wherever they go? The answer is simple – according to the book, the towel is the most necessary and indispensible item in the world!
And what’s this all got to do with Bohemia Apartments? We’ve decided to devote the month of May to a towel and hold it as a tribute to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. We’ve prepared for you a grand photo contest in which your towel will become an indispensible prop. A towel – the most necessary thing in the world – can get you the first place in our contest. And the reward is sweet, believe us. It’s nothing less than a weekend stay at one of our luxury apartments. That is worth it, don’t you think?
So long for now, and thanks for all the fish! ;-)
