Nashville, Tennessee I’m not that good at writing, so I’ll keep it to bulleted points with ratings and short notes where applicable.

Background: This trip in September 2018 was during Chol Hamoed Sukkos. We spent one day in Nashville and one day at Mammoth Cave National Park

Flights:
•   PHL to BNA on American Airlines
  • This was an award ticket. 7.5k Amex MR points transferred to BA.
  • We live in Brooklyn but the only available flights were from PHL, so we rented a car in Brooklyn that we could drop-off at PHL (and thereby fly back to NYC)
•   BNA to LGA on American Airlines
  • This was an award ticket. 7.5k Amex MR points transferred to BA.

Hotel:
•   Hyatt Place Nashville/Brentwood- 3/5

Method of Transport:
•   Car Rental- National

Food:
•   Grins Vegetarian Café- 3/5
•   Aryeh's Kitchen- 4/5
  • Food was absolutely delicious!
•   We schlepped along our tiny pop-up Sukkah (which we used all of one time because of the constant rain). American managed to rip the handle off the carrying case, so I filed a report and got reimbursed for the full value of the sukkah…

Activities:
•   Ryman Auditorium- 3/5
•   Belle Meade Plantation- 3/5
•   Lower Broadway
•   Parthenon- 1/5
  • There’s nothing to see here…
•   Hop on Hop Off- 2/5

Kentucky (Mammoth Cave National Park #2) I’m not that good at writing, so I’ll keep it to bulleted points with ratings and short notes where applicable.

Background: I’m trying to visit every National Park in the USA. This was a short trip in September 2018 to see Mammoth Cave National Park.

Flights and Hotels:
•   We drove from Nashville. See my Nashville, Tennessee trip report.

Method of Transport:
•   Car Rental- National

Hotel:
•   Hyatt Place Bowling Green- 3/5

Food:
•   Brought our own- along with a tiny pop-up Sukkah

Activities:
•   Mammoth Cave National Park- 3/5
  • Entry to the park grounds are free but all the ranger guided tours (which is pretty much the only thing to do here) require reservations and have a fee. We took three tours in total (the most we could fit into one day). The tours range from one to three hours. Some are fascinating, especially where you have to squeeze through formations to get around.

Re: United Arab Emirates
Wow! that is one of the wildest things I've heard in a very long time. Not in any way bad just fascinating and not the p'sak either I'm just astounding that you wanted to and you pulled it off. (pics please) What were you wearing? Everyone knows you can spot a jew from miles away especially the ones that wear a baseball cap with their peyos bulging out, I get you weren't that obvious but still that is...wild!

Well, for the wanting part, it's one of the most beautiful modern buildings in the world, so that's that.
As for the looking Jewish part, we definitely got that part down pat :). They have no issue with Jews, and couldn't care less what we looked like. At the entrance to the mosque they have dressing rooms and since our ankles weren't covered, they kindly requested us to change into Muslim garb (they provide). It was one of the highlights for sure :)
