Hotel: An American History
When George Washington embarked on his presidential tours of 1789?91, the rudimentary inns and taverns of the day suddenly seemed dismally inadequate. But within a decade, Americans had built the first hotels
?large and elegant structures that boasted private bedchambers and grand public ballrooms. This book recounts the enthralling history of the hotel in America?a saga in which politicians and prostitutes, tourists and tramps, conventioneers and confidence men, celebrities and salesmen all rub elbows. Hotel explores why the hotel was invented, how its architecture developed, and the many ways it influenced the course of United States history. The volume also presents a beautiful collection of more than 120 illustrations, many in full color, of hotel life in every era.
Hotel explores these topics and more:
· What it was like to sleep, eat, and socialize at a hotel in the mid-1800s
· How hotelkeepers dealt with the illicit activities of adulterers, thieves, and violent guests
· The stories behind America’s greatest hotels
, including the Waldorf-Astoria, the Plaza, the Willard, the Blackstone, and the Fairmont
· Why Confederate spies plotted to burn down thirteen hotels in New York City during the Civil War
· How the development of steamboats and locomotives helped create a nationwide network of hotels
· How hotels became architectural models for apartment buildings
· The pivotal role of hotels in the civil rights movement
View of Mechanics Bay from Grafton Bridge in Auckland, New Zealand
View of Mechanics Bay on the Pacific Ocean from the Grafton Bridge in Auckland. The Grafton Bridge is an arch bridge that goes over the Grafton Gully, and was built in 1910. Auckland is near
the northern tip of the North Island, where it is somewhat narrow, approximately 15 miles between this bay and, I believe, one of the only cities with two bays, the Mechanics Bay (on the north-northeast side), an inlet from the Hauraki Gulf, and the Manukau Harbour (on the south-southwest side) which opens to the Tasman Sea. Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand, with approximately 1.4 million people, near
ly ? of New Zealand's population.
This was taken on day 3 of our family trip to New Zealand and Australia (days 1 and 2 were spent flying).
Our Trip Summary:
Day 3 (June 15): Spent the day walking around Auckland. Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand with almost 1.4 million people, near
ly ? of New Zealand's population.
Day 4 ( June 16): All-day Motorcoach tour to Waitangi (pronounced why tang eee), and the Bay of Islands, where we went on a long boat ride.
Day 5 (June 17): All-day Motorcoach tour to the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves (pronounced like why toe moe), and from there we went to an awesome and fun farm just outside of the city of Rotorua (population 68,000, named after Lake Rotorua, a lake formed from a volcanic caldera), and from there went to a Maori (pronounced Maw ree) reservation where we saw an aboriginal performance, and also went to the Rotorua Hot Springs.
Day 6 (June 18): We took the Overlander passenger train from Auckland (on the north side of the North Island) to Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, on the south side of the North Island. The New Zealand rail gauge is 3 feet 6 inches (107.7 cm), which is 3/4 (or 75%) of the North American standard gauge.
Day 7 (June 19): We spent the day in Wellington, going to a cool museum and riding on their steep cable car. New Zealand cities are very hilly (with very large hills), kind of like San Francisco.
Day 8 (June 20): We took a ferry from Wellington, on the North Island to a small town called Picton, on the South Island, and then took the TranzCoastal train from Picton to Christchurch, New Zealand.
Day 9 (June 21): We went skiing on Mount Hutt at Methaven, about 71 miles (115 km) outside of Christchurch. It was so fun!!!
Day 10 (June 22): After touring the Christchurch Cathedral in the morning, we took a flight from Christchurch to Sydney, Australia.
Day 11 (June 23): We spent the day around Sydney. We went to the aquarium
, then in the afternoon, we took the SydneyLink electrified commuter rail train, with standard 4 foot 8? inch (143.5 inches) gauge to Mount Colah, Australia, where we ate at a friend's house.
Day 12 (June 24): We took a coach tour to a nature center near
Sydney, and from there went to the Blue Mountains where we rode the world's steepest railway and saw the Three Sisters. We then went back to Sydney
Days 13 (Sydney to Los Angeles) and 14 (Los Angeles To St. Louis) were spent getting back home to the St. Louis area. 14 hour flights suck, and that's the only negative part about having to take an awesome trip like this (besides, of course, the cost, LOL :)
Since my dad's a pilot, we got huge discounts on flights and hotels, so it was almost as cheap for us as it is for an average person to take a domestic flight on a domestic trip. :)
Stonefish at natural pool
A stonefish at the natural pool near Oro bay, Isle of Pines, New Caledonia, Oceania.
We found this guy just some minutes after having seen that moray (previous photo), at the same way back from the natural pool to the hotel, at Isle of Pines. Again, this is in the nature, the first time I saw a stonefish not in an artificial aquarium! I was impressed by all the variety of sea creatures that we can find in that natural pool. I spent hours snorkeling there just some hours before, but didn't suspect that these dangerous guys were around. Thank God, cause if I had knew it, maybe I wouldn't have done snorkeling, what would have been a pity, because the other beautiful fishes and corals worth the while!
Um peixe pedra que encontramos na piscina natural, no mesmo caminho de volta para o hotel em Ile des Pins.
Achamos esse carinha ai alguns minutos depois de termos visto aquela moreia (foto anterior). Novamente digo, isso e na natureza, a primeira vez que vi um peixe pedra fora de um aquario artificial! Fiquei impressionada com a vaiedade de criaturas marinhas que encontramos nesta piscina natural. Eu tinha passado horas fazendo snorkel nesse dia e nao imaginei que podia haver animais tao perigosos tao pertinho; melhor assim, se nao talvez eu nao tivesse feito o snorkel e teria perdido de ver toda a beleza dos outros peixes e corais de la, que valem a pena serem vistos!
