    This site is beautiful. My wife and I are talking about making the trip soon. There is a hotel in San Marcos on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala: Hotel Aaculaax. It is a beautiful property designed and fashioned from found objects in a natural setting. Check it out!

    prime example of what Baran is saying is my old school – Stowe.

    probably the most beautiful place I’ve been. Kept in great shape by the extortionate school fees they charge!

    Unfortunately most preservation efforts require money which may be in short supply. Not everything can be kept pristine without any use. The trick is to decide which sites are so important that they have to be preserved and which sites can be put to some use to pay for their preservation. It’s a judgment call and often a subject of controversy.

    Dear SmegHeads, one of the best ways of protecting the hictorical structures is using them. The problem is, quality of usage. You should think about the philosophy of architectural conservation. On the other hand, Yunak Evleri looks nice.

    This is a disgrace. You should not have ruined an ancient place with a stupid hotel. A hotel? Really? Whats the smegging world coming to.
