Re: Panama TR- a Hidden Family Gem (w/AWESOME restaurants)! Totally agree on your assessment of Pita Plus - the food was absolutely fantastic, yet simple. The best burger I ever had was there.

I'll be in the region next month and I'm actually considering booking TGU-PTY-GUA-EWR over TGU-GUA-EWR just so I can take my wife to Pita Plus.

Re: Viva La Revolución! Time-traveling to Cuba with Something Fishy, whYME, and CITH

"Now the hotel, jointly owned by Kempinski and the military-controlled Cuban tour operator Gaviota, charges between $440 and $2,485 a night."

Shameful, IMO.

Here's the hotel under construction on the near left:

Re: Bora Bora Dreaming at the Conrad Bora Bora - Exploring in 4K Great start, looking forward to the rest.

Lovely pictures (except for the Lofoten one, you know I hate you for that).

Re: Proofread DDMS Posts In Advance...
Agreed, oblivious not 40 part TR's. but ones that don't take more than around 5-8 minutes to read.

I don't think people read TRs for sound bites. They come for a good long read.

Re: Something Fishy's Trip Reports Thread Hmmmm.

Today's XKCD:

Playing around with Google maps, we discovered that the Hill Air Force base in Odgen, UT maintains a small AF museum. We figured we could at least get some interesting shots of the planes and missiles on display.
We got there only to find it closed for the day. The planes and everything were still clearly visible on the other side of the fence, so we drove up to the guard at the main gate to the base (which was right next to the museum entrance) to find out if we’re allowed to shoot over the fence. I parked the car a short distance from the guard booths, and walked over. The guard got visibly nervous the closer I got, and had his gun out of the holster by the time I came up to him. As soon as it was clear that I’m not planning on blowing myself up, he relaxed and told me that we could take as many pictures as we wanted so long as we don’t point our cameras in the direction of the base or security installations.
Great, right? So we get out of the car and get a couple of shots. Not two minutes go by when we are surrounded by 3 military police jeeps, lights flashing and sirens blaring. The biggest MP marches over and tells us not to move, and that the base commander in on his way over.  :o :o :o
We had to wait just a minute or two for him to show up, but it felt like an eternity. We had already said goodbye to catching our flight home, not to mention getting home before shabbos (this was late Thursday). And this was already the best case scenario… Finally the base commander shows up, and to our surprise (and relief!) turns out to be this young, easygoing guy. He wanted to know who we were and where we’re from, what were we doing in the area, etc., etc., all standard questions. We had to show him some of the pictures we took on our trip, but at that point he was pretty convinced that we didn't represent Al-Qaeda. We explained that we had specifically asked for, and had been given, permission from the guard at the gate.

This got him mad. "Either he gives you permission and lets you be, or he doesn't and calls security! What's he think he's doing, giving you permission and then calling for backup...". He promised he'll "take care" of the guard later. (What we assume happened was that the guard probably figured we'll pull out some phones, or at most a little point and shoot, but when we took out serious equipment and long lenses he panicked.) In any case, he explained that whenever there's a "security incident" he has to write a full report, so we now have our names on some government list as potential terrorists or who knows what :o.

Re: Presenting The New And Improved DDMS Beta Talking about the look - not the functionality - of the site, my overall feeling is that it's too clinical-looking. Maybe something as simple as a slightly off-white background could fix this. In a way it looks like a platform's default template.

The first impression of the homepage is "just another lousy deal site", not a respected and well-regarded one.
