This is what I call a PRESIDENT

This is what I call a PRESIDENT  |  Chicago, United States  |  It is not my style to post political material on my blog, since I do cover travel and lifestyle. But this time I feel the need to do so. This is what I call a PRESIDENT with all the meaning of the word. Moving FORWARD.  The last four minutes of OBAMA’s Presidential Speech, last nigh, addressing every single minority that makes this great country (because we are each ourselves a minority) it is what explains it all “It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or White, Hispanic or Asian. Native American or young or old, rich or poor, abled or disabled, gay or straight. You can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.” -President Obama. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

GPS Carlos Melia at Yotel New York City

GPS Carlos Melia at Yotel New York City  |  New York, United States  |  Just Checked IN at my Premium Cabin at Yotel New York. I am fully fascinated by the concept and style of this hotel. Luxury cabins with full five-star services, avant-garde design and technology, a great location for a very affordable price. Where Mission Control is their version of a Concierge Desk, fully automated Check IN, a robot that stores your luggage and a real Dohyo is the restaurant and bar. I will be posting more upon departure, but I wanted to share this with you all, since I found it to be the coolest affordable hotel option in New York City. where you won’t jeopardize quality and service for price.
