I'm about ready for people to stop with the infinity pools.

Any particular reason? (Aside from "It's played-out.")

Great, more for the rest of us.

No, that's pretty much the reason. It's cliche to me now. Sure, there are good situations for it, but it's now overused so people can say INFINITY POOL!



Like you need a seamless unobstructed water-level view when you're in the pool at all times. Get in the spa mofo, pool is for swimming.

I'm sure that is why, people have them and not because of lack of an ugly concrete block in their view the other 23,5 hours a day.

Looks awesome, presuming they are hot mineral springs: where is that located?

I'm pretty sure this was where Calypso kept Odysseus for 7 years.

Was the set of the island of Ogygia in the '97 made-for-TV version of The Odyssey with Armand Assante.

I guess this begs the question: which is worse, infinity pools, or black houses.
