Stonehenge and me.

I was told not to go to Stonehenge, acquaintances from work, tourists, and locals.

I had already lost my tour since I misplaced my printed ticket and I was told to get another at the tour office. Which tour office? I didn’t find the office and the bus left without me. Later I would find out that they were sorry they left me because I was, indeed, on the passenger list. It would be until next week, on a Saturday that I could take the tour again. I was hesitant.

I was pondering the comments I received about Stonehenge, the fact that I would be going by myself, I was going to miss the activities I had planned for that day, and at the end that place was just a bunch of stones placed next to one another and some on top.

Living in a country full of pyramids, I had to take back my statement about Stonehenge being only a tiers of stones. From my state of being at that moment, Stonehenge was more than what I was told, I was really moved by being there. I don’t regret it now and for sure I will be back.

409,000 sq ft of Books, Vasconcelos Library

The Vasconcelos Library in Mexico City(forgot to put where it is) was inaugurated in 2006 and  finally opened in 2008.   It has to aisles that go around which look endless, a six-story full of books and media and a lower lobby where expositions are set or art/drawing classes are given. Look at the very short video so you can have  an idea of how big it is.

This photo shows half of the aisle of the Library. The library is twice this long.
