We recently announced that the incredible Low Line Park project, which plans to transform an abandoned underground subway station into a flourishing subterranean public space, has started a Kickstarter campaign that is pulling in big bucks. Collecting more than $135,000 in funds already, the underground oasis is moving closer and closer to realization. In honor of this enormous backing, and to rouse up even more excitement, Mark Miller Gallery will be displaying a life-size rendering of the Delancey Underground throughout the month of April. In an exhibition titled “Let There Be Light,” visitors can see the underground park at scale, examine the designers’ 3D replica of the park, and learn more about the solar technology that can make the park possible.

Roman Baths in Bath

50 Year Project

We didn’t have a lot of time to spend in Bath, but I made sure to visit the Roman Baths in this delightful town.  The baths are well-preserved and are a kick to wander around.  More than one million visitors pop in each year.  Most of the baths are located under the streets.  The bath pictured below is just a fraction of the Roman Baths during their heyday, roughly 2,000 years ago. In addition to seeing the baths you can visit the Grand Pump Room, where you can eat in the restaurant.  Also, you can sample the water from the warm spring.  If you would like to plan a trip to the Roman Baths check out this link.

The Grand Pump Room.

Here is my sample of the water.  It had a strong smell and a slight metallic taste.  It wasn’t the best water I had.  And it wasn’t the…

Spanish crash course 101: How to speak Spanish like the Guatemalans do (Part 1)

View of Xela from the school roof.

I woke up to the sound of the eternally barking dog outside my window, wondering for a moment where on earth I was.  I checked my cheap plastic travel watch and it read 6:50 am.  The sun had yet to light up my bedroom and I was exhausted after a fitful night’s sleep.  I tossed and turned, continually stuffed in my ear plugs and cranked my white noise up yet nothing seemed to help drown out the symphony of noise from the Guatemalan city life.  Unfortunately I’ve always been a light sleeper which got worse after I became a mother.  I swear I sleep with one eye open, listening throughout the darkness of the night for someone to call my name.

My first day at Spanish school was in a little over an hour and I was so tired I had no idea…
