It turned out this man worked for the Dalai Lama. And she said gently-that they believe when a lot of things start going wrong all at once, it is to protect something big and lovely that is trying to get itself born-and that this something needs for you to be distracted so that it can be born as perfectly as possible.Anne Lamott (via observando)
Have you visited El Ateneo in Buenos Aires?
It is probably one of the most beautiful libraries in the whole world. Yes, I’ve been there.
I wanna go
"My family made me come. But I hate it. I can’t get a job because I have a lot of accent. I was an assistant manager at a big jewelry store in the Dominican Republic, now I clean tables. We had a big house there. Now we live in a small apartment. If I was home right now, I’d be in a very nice restaurant, on the beach, laughing with my friends. Not sitting alone on a bench, trying to learn English. There I was a princess. Here I am an immigrant. A servant."

Exploring Singapore’s Sands SkyPark Infinity Pool
On the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore, the luxurious outdoor Sands SkyPark Infinity Pool stretches 150 meters (492 feet) across three hotel towers. A catchment system below the pool keeps the water circulating at the top while complex architecture secures the pool’s deck to the towers that sway subtly with the wind 200 meters (650 feet) above ground. The pool is not only renowned for its unique location and length, but also for the vanishing edge effect, designed by Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. The pool is open only to hotel guests, and Instagrammers who stay at the hotel share their exclusive experience of the pool’s visual illusion and spectacular view of the city’s skyline.
