The Bravo star’s sexy black bikini, which she wore for her sunny getaway to Mexico, showcased her incredible fit physique.

Luann de Lesseps, 56, looked absolutely incredible in new photos taken from her holiday vacation to Tulum, Mexico on January 2. The Real Housewives of New York City star was snapped by paparazzi rocking a two-piece black bikini while hitting the beach at the sunny destination. Luann, whose impressively toned body was on full display in the photos, added to her look with a white hat and black sunglasses.

Luann appears to be living her best life on vacation. The photos showed the Bravo star looking super relaxed as she headed from the crowded pool area to the beach, where we can assume that she took a dip in the ocean. She was joined by some friends, though none were her RHONY co-stars.

Luann posted a snapshot of her bikini look to Instagram while she was on the beach. “Kicking off the new year in paradise! 🌴☀️ Happy #2022!” she wrote. She also took a video of the gorgeous scenery on the beach. Some fellow Housewives, including Cynthia Bailey of Atlanta and Marysol Patton of Miami, wished Luann a happy New Year in the comments section of her vacation post.

“The Countess” has been enjoying her time-off ever since season 13 of RHONY finished airing last year. The season, which also featured Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Eboni K. Williams and Leah McSweeney, was not well-received by viewers and hit all-time low ratings. The reunion was even canceled, which Bravo chalked up to “scheduling challenges.”

At this time, it’s not clear who will be returning for Season 14. But given the fact that the show lost viewers and didn’t hold a reunion, we’d venture a guess and say that there will probably be some retooling.

SpaceWalk: A Spectacular Rollercoaster-Esque Staircase Loops Through a South Korean Park

Towering 70-meters above ground at its highest point, “SpaceWalk” is the latest undulating sculpture by Hamburg-based artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth. The monumental staircase winds in loops and elevations similar to that of a rollercoaster throughout Hwanho Park in Pohang, South Korea, and is almost entirely accessible for pedestrians except for the innermost circuit. It’s the largest contemporary public sculpture ever installed in the country.

A follow-up to the pair’s 2011 project “Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain” in Duisburg, Germany, “SpaceWalk” is built of galvanized and stainless steels atop a cement foundation and embedded rows of LED lights. “At night in particular, the brightly-illuminated walkway appears like a sigil drawn in the sky, appearing to represent different things depending on where one is standing,” Mutter and Genth say. “Thus, the sculpture also references local mythology and a tradition of sky-gazing and also makes playful use of relativity.”

Pedestrians enter the work at a central staircase, which breaks into two paths: one gently sloped walkway leads to a view of Yeongil Bay and the surrounding city, while the other is a steeper climb through a helix. Both are designed to mimic an otherworldly experience. “The title ‘SpaceWalk’ is taken from the terminology of outer space missions. It describes the act of exiting the space vehicle in the weightlessness of outer space. More literally, ‘SpaceWalk’ can be understood to mean ‘a walk through space,'” they say.

Archeologists Unearth a Roman Glass Bowl Dating Back 2,000 Years in Pristine Condition

January 27, 2022

Sitting a few miles from the German border, Nijmegen is the oldest city in The Netherlands, and after a recent archeological dig, it’s also the site that unearthed a stunningly preserved bowl made of blue glass. The pristine finding, which is estimated to be about 2,000 years old, is from the agricultural Bataven settlement that once populated the region. Featuring diagonal ridges, the translucent vessel was made by pouring molten glass into a mold, sculpting the stripes while the material was liquid, and using metal oxide to produce the vibrant blue. Archeologists uncovered it without a single chip or crack.

Around the time the bowl was procured, Nijmegen was an early Roman military camp and later, the first to be named a municipium, or Roman city. Archeologist Pepjin van de Geer, who led the excavation, told the De Stentor that while it’s possible the vessel was created in a German glass workshop in cities like Cologne or Xanten, it’s also likely that the Batavians traded cattle hides to procure it. In addition to the piece, van de Geer’s team has also uncovered human bones, pitchers, cups, and other precious goods like jewelry, which indicates the site was once a burial ground.
