After many years in the making, the Design Museum is finally up and running, and incorporates the former Textile and Clothing, Decorative Arts and Ceramics museums. Housed in a futuristic building (known as the ‘Hammer’, for its shape) hanging precariously over the Plaça de les Glòries, it offers free entrance until 15th January.

Forty ballerinas from the Russian National Ballet, along with the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, come together to perform the magical Swan Lake in the plush environs of the Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelona) for three days only. Tickets are selling out fast, so book as early as you can, and don’t forget to dress the part.
Bitter January might not be the best time to visit this lower Manhattan landmark, since part of the tour involves standing on the street in front, listening to your architect tour guide. But as of a month ago, this is the first time in this century that the 101-year-old tower has been open to tourists. Fortunately the tours go inside as well, giving you a little chance to defrost while you admire the ornate lobby. They don’t build ’em like this anymore.

The Okavango River is a river in southwest Africa. It is the fourth-longest river system in southern Africa, running southeastward for 1,600 km (990 mi). It begins in Angola, where it is known as the Cubango River. Further south it forms part of the border between Angola and Namibia, and then flows into Botswana, draining into the Moremi Game Reserve.

Honokohau Falls :: Maui, Hawaii ...said to be the tallest waterfall on Maui. Puʻu Kukui is one of the wettest spots on Earth

Honokohau Falls, Maui Waterfalls, Hawaii THE VERY NATURE OF GREEN
Photographer says: "It's very GREEN here. I photographed these waterfalls from an open helicopter (doors off) near the summit of Puu Kukui in the West Maui Mountains, Maui, Hawaii. Honokohau Falls is said to be the tallest waterfall on Maui. It plunges in two tiers for a total of 1600 feet -- making it the second highest falls in the United States (only Yosemite Falls is higher)."
Honokohau Falls is the tallest waterfall in Maui, my favorite island (Hawaiian island, I mean). If you go there, bike down Haleakala at dawn... you'll never forget it

The President, the third largest tree on earth.Giant Forest Grove 36°33′45″N 118°45′05″W 240.9 feet (73.4 m) 93.0 feet (28.3 m) 45,148 cubic feet (1,278.4 m3)[note 1] named after U.S. President Warren G. Harding (thank you wikipedia)
"The President" a 3200 Year Old Tree in Sequoia National Park in the southern Sierra Nevada's of California ~ The giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall, measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume, ~ The trunk is 27 feet wide and its branches hold 2 billion needles, the most of any tree on the planet. ~ "The President" is still adding one cubic meter of wood per year - making it one of the fastest growing trees in the world.
odditiesoflife: This 3200 Year Old Tree is So Massive, It’s Never Been Captured in a Single Image…Until Now It takes a special kind of tree to have a nickname like “The President”. The giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and is an estimated 3,200 years old. The trunk measures 27 feet across and, between the base and the highest peak, there are an estimated two billion needles. Until now, the tree had never been photographed in its entirety. A team of photographers from National Geographic worked with scientists from California’s Sequoia National Park to try to be the first. It took an intricate set of pulleys and levers to scale the tree, which one scientist argues is the largest in the world (if you take into account width). After stitching together 126 separate photos, we are left with this mind-blowing portrait of “The President” captured in a single photo for the first time.
