Seaside Swimming Pool

Always good to see a swimming pool exactly where you need it. At San Alfonso del Mar resort in Chili they know how to cater people that love nature – except for the rocks, bites and tides of course!

Did humankind crawl out of the ocean to end up in a seaside pool? I hope we can do better.

I had the same reaction when I saw this, but it turns out that oceanic currents from antarctic waters make the beach waters in chile extremely cold. They still want to capitalize on beach front property though hence the crazy pool.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
