– It was not easy to do it. We made up the so-called 15. salads (with wet clay bricks), but only three survived drying. We just had to burn it in a furnace. But if the festival was canceled, I will not be in a hurry – he says regretfully Felix Trojanowski, who intended to break his own record last year. He did not make an attempt for a record claim because of the cost of more than 2 thousand. Golden. – Besides, it would not make sense.
