    I've been living in Cleveland far too long to not go see Lake View Cemetery. President Garfield, John D. Rockefeller, Harvey Pekar, and the namesake of practically every building in town are buried there. It's a beautiful fall walk through the woods.

  • Chijmes

    written by dotdotdot on 2009-12-20 #places

    Careful restoration work has preserved much of the original structure of the convent and the chapel. After almost five and a half years of conservation and construction work, what was once the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus and the seat of education for generations of Singapore girls, has been converted into a plaza of theme retail and food and beverage outlets interspersed with ample outdoor spaces and courtyards, cloistered walls and long, covered walkways. This haven in the city hub of Singapore, now known as CHIJMES, is a S$100 million project unmatched for its location and unique ambiance.

  • Exeter College Chapel

    Exeter College Chapel

    Although Oxford is packed full of (probably) lovely college chapels, the best one is definitely Exeter College's (although I am perhaps biased since it's my college and all, but that doesn't matter, it's definitely worth a visit). It might not be St. Peter's or the Sistine Chapel or anything, but one thing it certainly has over them is how quiet it is - it's a hidden gem of Oxford, in a college that most tourists seem (stupidly) to pass by, so you'd be very unlucky to be stuck in the middle of a big tour group.
