"He doesn’t mind living with his sister, dog, and cats
Though he’d rather share a home with spiders and bats
There he could reflect on the horrors he has invented and wander dark hallways alone and tormented ”
my favorite tim burton short ever!!
Born in Denmark in 1978, John Kenn spends his days writing and directing television shows for kids. When he has time between TV and his twins, he draws his creepy little monster drawings on post-it notes, peeking into a little window into a different world, made entirely on office supplies.
This was the abandoned Hotel del Salto, also known as the Tequendama Falls Hotel, located in San Antonio del Tequendama, Colombia. The old hotel overlooked the Tequendama Falls on the Bogotá River in Colombia. It was opened in 1924 and shut its doors in the 1990′s. For the last 20 years, the hotel had stood abandoned with a grand haunted past. But it is now a museum.
In 1923, the building was constructed as a mansion by the architect Carlos Arturo Tapias, as a symbol of the joy and elegance of Colombian’s elite citizens of the 1920’s. The house was named “The Mansion of Tequendama Falls” and was built during Colombia’s presidency of Pedro Nel Ospina (1922-1926).
The hotel was abandoned in the 1990s, for more than two decades, due to river contamination. The hotel’s French Gothic design and neglected beauty enhanced the idea that the hotel was haunted by local residents. After 20 years, the abandoned beauty was finally put to good use. The hotel has become the Museum of Biodiversity and Culture, restoring the old building’s beauty and purpose.
