Re: Budapest Master Thread There are several Danube river cruises. AFAIK, at least the one I took left from the Pest side, from Vigadó téri Hajóállomás. It's a few steps away from Vorosmarty ter (which is also a tourist spot). Vigadó tér is a nice square as well.

In the summer the artists' village of Szentendre makes a nice half-day tour from Budapest. You can take a cruise there as well, or take the train from Batthyány Square.

In Buda the entire castle area is nice to walk around. The Fisherman's Bastion, which is where all tourist flock to and where they stared charging an entrance fee is the most annoying part of the entire castle. A few blocks away is the remains of a synagogue from the middle ages that was used by Syrian Jews during the Ottoman occupation. Yes, hold your hat, Hungary had mostly Sephardi Jews at that time. address: Táncsics Mihály u. 26

Bécsi kapu, or Vienna Gate used to be called Zsidó kapu (Jewish Gate) for a reason.
if you are so inclined, it's good to read Megillat Ofen by R. Yichak ben Zalman Schulhof (his father was the dayan of Prague) about the siege of 1686 before taking this walk.

Széchényi Chain Bridge is definitely something to see as well.

There are kevarim closer to Budapest than eastern Hungary. Vac is a 45 minutes drive to the north. ר׳ ישעי׳ זילבערשטיין זצ״ל אב״ד ווייצען is buried there.

Re: Next Vacation - Ideas
It looks so amazing! How experienced of a camper do we need to be?
You can rent a cabin, then you have a fridge and more comfort. It comes with a fire ring for cooking.
Check out KOA (http://koa.com/campgrounds/bar-harbor-oceanside/) People are usually friendly and kids love it.

There is also an SPG hotel in Bangor, which is within driving distance to the park if you want to use points.

FYI I really wanted to go to Japan largely in part of your great TR but apparantly the summer is an awful time to visit. (We could have tried to work out our passport issue)
Go for it, you are better at finishing TRs than me.

Re: Thailand Master Thread
Has anyone been to Ayutthaya?
yes, a number of years ago on a day trip from Bangkok. Interesting, mostly Stupas and statues, it was the ancient capital of Thailand. There is a floating market somewhere there but I haven't seen it.

Re: Prison
I would hope that everyone would answer that in the negativebor at least endeavors to answer is in that fashion. My bracha is you should never be tested.
I will insert the relevant Geschichte here:
R. Chaim Halberstam of Sanz, known as the Divrei Chaim, once stood at his window and called to a passerby.

"What would you do," he asked, "if you found a purse with a large sum of money, and the name of its owner was in it?"

"What kind of question is that?" the man responded. "I would immediately return it."

"You speak foolishly," the Tzaddik said.

He then called in another man and repeated the question, to which this man replied, "A large sum of money? Why, I would keep it."

"You are a scoundrel," the Tzaddik said.

The next person to whom the question was put said, "Rabbi, how can I tell you now what I would do under those circumstances? I might say one thing now and act otherwise under temptation. Right now I can only hope that if I am put to the test, G-d will help me overcome temptation."

"Indeed you are truly wise and your words are spoken with intelligence and knowledge!" said the Tzaddik.

Re: Cell Phones in Israel
Golan accepts PayPal as a form of payment. You can use that with non-Israeli CC.
I use a US CC with Golan. I signed up on their website not in a store.
