    The street art corner

    There is no doubt, this is the corner most involved with street art in Cali. It's extended along the Calle 5 to the Calle 6, from the Carrera 9 to the Carrera 10 containing all the walls and bridges located inside this area. To be more exact you can take a look at "El Sub", another location that I previously recommended.

    Millefont Lake

    The Lake of Millefont is a beautiful place to take a walk, see nature, relax and take pictures. It's in the pre-alps, about 70 km from the coast of the Cote d'Azur and the city of Nice. You must leave Nice following the river Var, along the N202 road (west side of the city, near the airport). This road is the direct way to the mountains and you can quickly be in mountainous landscape and still see the Mediterranean Sea :).

    Castle Street (Vilnius)

    Vilnius is proudly named the European capital of culture in 2009, so this is why I just have to tell you a lot of good things about it. And if starting about the old part of the town, the first place you must see is the old Pilies g-ve (or Castle Street).

    Times Square

    Times Square in New York City is the ultimate tourist attraction. Times Square is constantly jam packed with tourists and, if you time it right, the naked cowboy could be there. I have never been fortunate enough to see him but if you go during the day, I'm sure you might see him with his signature cowboy hat, underpants, guitar and not much more.

    Mosque on the Mid Levels

    In this vast ether, devoid of all but allure, I am lost. The roads have all merged into one long timeline to which photographs or short poems are added to keep memories fresh. Faces appear in my memory from time to time and I have to go back to that timeline to figure out where I met them, and what we shared. The days shrivel. They pass in blurs, sometimes a few slip by while I wrestle with sleep. The clouds lay heavy. My mind is weighed down in thought. The times are strange. My ability to move forward is hindered by options. I lay swaying in the comatose condition of the condemned.

    Lake of Sainte Croix

    When we organized our little Lomo-meeting with golfpunkgirl and stoonja, we met at the lake of Sainte Croix, one of the favorite spots of stoonja. We took the A8 highway from Nice, and came out at the exit "Brignoles", then, about 50 km through little country roads up in the mountains, we suddenly we discovered the place: a beautiful blue lake in an amazing landscape full of very different colors.

    Abanoned mines in Ojos Negros

    The very poetic name of Ojos Negros does not make reference to the mysterious black eyes of some beautiful woman of remote times but rather to the coal and ore mines that made this small village famous in Spain.

    Teluk Chempedak Beach

    What I love about this beach is that I grew up there and this is where I'm from...not from the beach but the town called KUANTAN. This is the place like any other tropical beach minus the sun tanning craze fashion. This is a tropical beach in a fairly medium size town on the east coastline of Peninsula Malaysia. A very south-east Asian place where the locals don't strip to the max to enjoy having fun at the beach.

    One of my favorite vacation spots in Malaysia is Cameron Highland. I like it so much because of the weather. Due to its position which is in the highland, it is always cold and has nice weather. Cameron Highlands have lots of hotel and small hostel for travelers.

    A new and innovative contemporary art center, Le Wiels, has just opened its doors in one of the finest exponents of industrial modernist architecture in Brussels: the former brewery installations of the Wielemans Ceuppens company. The site was built in 1930 by Belgian architect Adrian Blomme and it's defiantly worth a visit.

    Alright, so I like to swim. Actually I prefer doing it outside, but what do you wanna do in cold cold winter? RRRight, hitting the Stadthallenbad. It`s deadly cheap (2,50 day card for students) and also, like the Stadionbad in summer, an amazing Austrian socio-cultural frying pan.

  • Greenwich

    written by vicuna on 2008-05-09 #places

    Greenwich is well known for the international time meridian, but it's also a nice borough of London. Sure, the main attraction is the central green park of the city with the observatory in it and the famous line of the 0°0' meridian line. A little museum about the fantastic adventure of time setting and fixing the 0°0' at this exact place is very interesting too.

  • Pantheon

Built as a church at the end of the 18th century in a Gothic style with antique Greek influences it was transformed after the French revolution in a memorial place of the greatest men of the French history in all kind of achievement (art, culture, literature, politics) and where these are buried.

    Fellows' Garden Exeter Colleg

    The Fellows' Garden of Exeter College is an amazing hidden spot right in the centre of the city. It is a completely enclosed walled garden surrounded by the beautiful buildings of Oxford - Exeter College on one side, the Bodleian library on another and if you go right to the end of the garden there's the best view in Oxford (and hence, the world... well, in my opinion anyway).
