Happy New Year!!

I'm sorry that I haven't been posting so often, but I'm taking a little (much needed) break in Uruguay.

Although I usually stay in José Ignacio, this time I'm staying at "la brava" which is super beautiful also and I'm loving every second. The weather has been glorious!! luckily.

I'll be posting more often soon, but I wanted to wish you a happy New Year!! hope 2011 was amazing and that 2012 brings lots of love, joy, magic and success into your lives!

Containers, Jose Ignacio, Uruguay

Container Design Loft created by chef/entrepreneur Alejandra Dellepiane, is a new hotel I discovered in José Ignacio. It is entirely made of shipping containers.

The containers are exactly that, containers! not much has been done with that... (as you can see) but the idea is original and it is the first hotel of its type in Uruguay. The interiors are retro and comfortable and I liked the exterior areas most of all... wooden decks and terraces as well as beautiful, flowered gardens seduced my eyes. Among other things, a grill and jacuzzi provide the perfect excuse to hang out there, before or after heading to the beach. All of this surrounded by a pine tree forest.

Solar panels provide hot water and all areas are lit with LED technology.

Ernesto Neto

Just before leaving Buenos Aires I went to Faena Arts Center to see an exhibition by Brazilian artist, Ernesto Neto. The installation invites us to interact with it in a playful way. First step is taking your shoes off and going into the heart of this work: a labyrinth of colorful ropes, soft balls underneath your feet and a beautiful combination of colors that intensify the experience.

The spiderweb- like installation called "a bug suspended in the scene" takes up the entire exhibition space creating a special, intimate and soothing atmosphere.

It's a great feeling to walk suspended on air! Hope you like it.

“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed...

It feels an impulsion...this is the place to go now.

But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.”

I heart El Xampanyet

The best part of a journey is the people you meet along the way. And the food.
