Anonymous asked: What is the connection between Machu Pichu, Indian feather heads, Christmas and Harti's Nut Hut?

The picture above does not show a sight from Machu Picchu, but from the Tyrolean town of Wattens, where Harti was born and raised… Undoubtedly, its features remind us strongly to the images of Inca goddesses - which is no coincidence at all, as latest historic research has proved!

In 1420 Frederick IV, Duke of Austria made the town of Innsbruck the capital of the county of Tyrol. He was known as “of the empty pockets”, causing troubles to those with full pockets. Consequently, a small group of wealthy citizens, the founders of the world famous “Cristal Worlds” in Wattens, decided to leave the country. Under the leadership of the audacious Franz Hinteroberunterhofer (who later on changed his name to Patchacútec Yupanqui) they sailed across the Atlantic ocean and settled down in South America, where they started to build the town of Machu Picchu (“Little Wattens”), which was finished around 1450.

The Indian feather head derives straight from the Tyrolean hat, which from its very origins used to be ornamented with eagle feathers: the feathers represented the hat owner’s grandness. There was not much grandezza with our Tyrolean adventurers, however, they found plenty of vulture feathers, which they stuffed on their hats…

How that all is connected to Xmas? God alone knows…

Q&A

Anonymous asked: Hello! I have noticed that Harti is capable of speaking so many different languages. Where has he picked up this asset and how did that happen?

Harti’s big advantage is his mother tongue: Tyrolean. This language is so close to any other one, because all its words sound similar and therefore can substitute for anything in any language - deciphering the actual meaning is up to the collocutor, independent from what language he speaks.

Let me give you an example: I have witnessed a Tyrolean guy entering an ice cream parlour many years ago - he wanted to buy a cornet with chocolate, coconut and fiocco ice cream. What he ordered was: “I would like to have chrrokro, chrrokro and chrrokro!”. He got served absolutely successfully…

THAT WAS THE HUG-A-FINN-DAY @ HARTI’S NUT-HUT!

It was just insane: crowds of folk scrambling around Harti’s Nut-Hut, pushing, screaming, waving the vouchers for the free hug&chestnut high above their heads! So it didn’t come as a surprise that Harti ran out of chestnuts in mid-afternoon already (not of hugs, though). We have collected so many tokens for our tombola on December 23rd that Harti is thinking about setting up two more prices to raffle off - he wants to show his gratitude to all his fans for the overwhelming response!
