Makes me feel very small to realize that even our observable universe is about 93 billion light years across. And that even our own Milky Way contains an estimated 100 billion stars. And the universe a very rough estimate of 10^24 stars. That's a million x billion x billion stars. That's a lot of space and stars to explore yet. The journey has hardly begun
Light speed is often spoken of as a cosmic speed limit … but not everything plays by these rules. In fact, space itself can expand faster than a photon could ever hope to travel.

Cool. A perfect copy of the Chriso Redemptor statue in Rio de Janeiro was made by #drones
Nobody's ever been able to make a perfect copy of Christ the Redeemer, the towering statue of Jesus that watches of Rio de Janeiro. That's largely because the sculpture is sitting on the top of a craggy hill near a windy coastline. What to do? Call in the drones.

Great cafe. They specialize in Whiskey, have a great collection of single malts. Sunday night after 10pm you can drink them at half price. Also a pretty good collection of beers. And great service

Good, if not spectacular hotel. Service was excellent, Internet connectivity in my room wasn't great though. Clean room, decent size.

Food is great, but the atmosphere is that of your average football stadium: very busy and loud

Good Mexican food. Decor is ok. In general very good service. A plus: it has a basement playroom for kids, so if you're looking for somewhere you can take them along, this is a good place

I use this pizzeria to order pizza's all the time. Usually, good to very good. The del Signore is my personal favorite. Delivery times are usually pretty fast too

Excellent dining for a very reasonable price! The food is at the level of a very good restaurant, yet you can have a 6-course meal for 32 euros. Small details separate it from a top restaurant (e.g. orange juice from a bottle instead of freshly squeezed), but I'd highly recommend it to anyone
