Throwback to the Alhambra
In awe at the sheer brilliance, excellence, and beauty of the architecture of this place. A place of utmost holiness to realize how, despite our insignificance, we can create something significant
Córdoba es para perderse

This is a Boat Lift. I don’t even know how to explain it but it’s V cool and V big
Christopher Colombus’ Tomb
At the Plantin-Moretus House Museum. Plantin, its founder, was kind of like the Mark Zuckerberg of books; meaning, he did not invent books or the printing press, but he made the printing press go viral, or global, ensuring access to books for everyone. This museum contains some of the rarest books in the world, including some of the very first pharmacology and anatomy books ever printed. The documents here have been inscribed into UNESCO’s Memory of the World Program because of the impact this place had in changing the world forever. It was a truly illuminating experience. If you’re ever in Antwerp, make sure you go visit.
I once heard a very inspiring poem called “Footsteps in the Sand”. Jk. I hate it. But I loved this place.

Buenas tardes desde el Generalife.
El Archivo de Indias de Sevilla. Both a testament to the events that occurred during the Spanish colonization, as well as a sobering reminder that cruelty and injustice still exist.

Hope your Friday is as #lit as the Grand Place in Brussels. Bad puns aside, the Grand Place has certainly been lit several times over the centuries. It was the main target of French bombardments during the Nine Years War, only to be sacked later by Brabant Revolutionaries. It was lit again during WWI by Germany to set up field kitchens. Nowadays it is lit for all of us to enjoy and take selfies at. This place is a must-see if you’re in Belgium, and it can also help us think of the many events that have transpired here and how such events changed the world.
