L’Arbre du Ténéré was once considered the most isolated tree on Earth, a landmark on caravan routes in the Sahara, until it was knocked down by a drunk Libyan truck driver in 1973.

New York City’s Hidden Subway Station Deep in the belly of New York’s subway system, a beautiful untouched station resides that has been forgotten for years with only a limited few knowing of its existence. Stunning decoration with tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights run across the entire curve of the station, almost a miniature imitation of Grand Central Station… But it sounds like something straight out of Harry Potter, right? It was opened in 1904, with the hope of making it the crowning glory of the New York subway system in elegant architecture and a place for commemorative plaques to honour the work that had resulted in such a successful underground mass transit system. The reason for its closure was that newer longer cars were required to match the demand of passengers that passed through the system. And if that isn’t enough, The Underbelly Project has turned it into a kind-of off-limits art gallery.

21 lugares que no creerás que existen No hay mejor forma de darnos cuenta de todo lo que nos falta por vivir que viajar. Sin embargo, a veces nuestros viajes están pensados para conocer los lugares turísticos del país o ciudad que visitamos, cuando no necesariamente son los más bonitos sino los más famosos. Aquí te dejamos una lista de lugares tan surrealistas que parecen sacados de historias fantásticas de nuestra niñez. Puedes ver la segunda parte de esta lista aquí.Túnel del amor, UcraniaEste asombroso lugar lleva el nombre del “Túnel del amor” y está situado en en Kevlan en Ucrania. Campos de Tulipanes, HolandaOriginaria de Asia Menor, cultivándose principalmente en Persia, China y Turquía; no fue sino hasta que en 1953 el botánico Carolous Clusius trasladó la flor desde Estambul a la Unversidad de Leiden para realizar investigaciones médicas, donde el tulipán supo disfrutar del clima y el suelo, y se convirtió en un símbolo nacional. Caverna Hang Son Doong, VietnamEsta cueva es la más monumental del mundo.

LaSaGnA TiMpAnO I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do, but other times it seems to come naturally. Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation. "How about something layered, because of all the vocal and instrument layering in the music?" Start by making a lasagna crust. Finally got it together. Now it's easy, just start building the layers! Alfredo sauce with some salami goes first. After 3 alfredo layers, I switched to pesto. A cheese only layer, just for fun. Tomato sauce is last. It's important to press things down as you go. In my opinion, it can't be lasagna without at least a little ricotta! I painted on some alfredo at the end as a glue. All sealed up. After baking. The flip is always a scary moment. Unveiling. A thing of beauty. Cutting is another tense event. Glorious!
