Re: Useful Bookmarklets (browser bookmarks that do cool things) My favorite bookmarklet is printerfriendly.
https://www.printfriendly.com/

I like to print out longer article rather than read them online. Typically the print function has large fonts and tons of pictures. Printerfriendly allows you to change font size, remove pictures and remove sections of a webpage just by clicking on them. Helps save paper and makes things easier to read.

Re: Site Suggestions IMO a better design would be having the Like button on the top right near the quote, and highlighted message about the actual likes. I made this in Paint so someone could definitely do better but that's the basic idea.

Re: Site Suggestions
you're not the only one

I was just making a visual of what I thought it should look like. Didn't mean to invalidate your previous comments.
Does this mean that in the future we'll see more posts of people fighting for likes on their original post like they do now for Hat Tips?

Re: Pay your rent with MC through RadPad for 1.99%
That's a big red flag with PayPal from what I've heard no?

It's a red flag, true but with this dead and PPDG basically dead, what else is there with paypal? I'm just transferring my balance to a new paypal account I created and then I'll cash that one out. Don't care if the new one dies.

Re: Site Suggestions I actually wrote a python script that pinged the site every minute (sorry dan) during the day and checked for new posts. If there was a new post that had certain keywords in the title or matched the categories I specified, it sent my wife and me a text message with a link to the post. Worked well during those price mistakes.

Aerial Dag's trip to Tanzania & Rwanda As I sit here in a tent in the middle of the Serengeti in Tanzania I realize that if I don't start a trip report now I'll probably never get around to making one. I'm not sure if people will find this useful since I didn't book anything with points other than the flights but there seemed to be a bit of interest in my non-points stay at Huvafen Fushi in the Maldives. Well anyway, let's take a step back.

6 weeks ago
My wife and I came to the sad realization that despite taking several trips in the Fall, for the first time in about 5 years we didn't have a single trip planned or in the works. With Zika going strong in many warm places we decided to dust off our Africa trip research and take a second look at that idea. We quickly realized that this was likely the last time for us take such a trip before future "little obligations" entered our life.

We contacted two travel agencies and quickly got to work. Booking trips in Africa is typically a long, slow ordeal but since my wife had basically done all her research about places to stay and areas to visit in advance, we fed the agencies this information and asked them to come up with itineraries. There was some back and forth about the itinerary but we were pretty set in things we wanted. After playing the agencies against each other to bring the price down, we pushed them to move as quickly as possible and had a trip booked and paid for in about 10 days. We made a few people uncomfortable doing it so quickly but we're from NYC and I guess they smelled a quick sale. We probably broke some sort of record.

Next were our flights. I had enough of each UR, AA, TU, and MR for J. I was hoping to take advantage of the AA Qatar multi region allowance for Africa but unfortunately I couldn't find any availability so close to my flight time. In fact, I couldn't find much business class availability anywhere. I was getting pretty desperate (I had even previously put a hold on economy just so the travel agency felt comfortable I had at least some flight reserved). Thankfully a few days after searching, some new availability opened up and I booked EWR-FRA-ADD-JRO for the way to Africa and KGL-BRU-MUC-EWR for the way home. Not the ideal flight route but it got us there in J so I was happy enough.

Deutschland
We took a 6pm Lufthansa flight to FRA and sat downstairs in a 2-2-2- config. We tried to sleep as much as possible so I can't really comment on the flight more than to say that the beds were fine, though they make for an awkward configuration if you don't know your neighbor. When I have a better wifi connection I'll upload pictures. We arrived in Frankfurt at around 7am pretty tired despite our sleeping attempts. We had a 14 hour stop over in Frankfurt so we decided to make the best of it and joined a walking tour which started at 10:30am. We got to the city, grabbed some coffee and met up with the group. The tour is run by a married American couple who have been living in Frankfurt for a number of years. It was interesting and touched on important parts of the city but does involve two church visits. Overall there just isn't that much to see so despite being over 2 hours, it was one of the worst walking tours we've been on. Also it cost 14 euro a person.

After the tour we visited the Frankfurt holocaust memorial site at the Jewish cemetery. I found the memorial to be simple yet effective. From afar you see black stones stuck in the wall surrounding the Jewish cemetery but as you get closer you realize that each stone actually has the name and information of every Jew from Frankfurt that died in the Holocaust.
We then went inside their Jewish museum which gives a history of the Jewish population of Frankfurt. The museum was new, heavily staffed but very informative. I love learning about how Jews lived in these Western countries back in the day and the museum did a great job explaining it.

After the museum we still had several hours to spare so we headed back to the airport. We went through security and went to the Lufthansa lounge. Our next flight on Ethiopian Airways wasn't for a while so we went to the sleeping room and took a 2 hour nap. The beds in the lounge were super comfortable and since they provide pillows and blankets I could have stayed the whole night. But alas, our flight was boarding so we quickly made our way to our plane and boarded the Dreamliner. Ethiopian was running a 2-3-2 config which surprised me. My wife and I sat in the middle section but the seat next to us was empty. It was comfortable and we slept the entire way.

Almost there...
We arrived in ADD and immediately headed towards the lounge. It was super basic and reminded me of the lounge in Sri Lanka. They had a sleeping area which was nice but the place was lit up with tons of natural sunlight which was not so nice. After trying to sleep for an hour or two we eventually went to our next flight to JRO. I'll put up some pictures of this flight but it was only 1.5 hours so not much to report.

Tanzania
We finally arrived in JRO. The arrival terminal was very similar to small Caribbean countries where you are ushered to a small hut like location where you have to get your visa. Since we were in business we were first in line to get the visa. After handing the agent the form I was pretty surprised to hear him say that we had to pay $200 in cash to get our visa. At first I thought he was trying to play us but I confirmed it with others. Luckily I brought USD for tips so I had the money and paid him on the spot. I later learned that visas are $50/person except for Americans who are charged $100/person. Great. After that little setback, we met our driver who was to drive us to our first stop, the Arusha Coffee Lodge in Arusha.

For that, you'll have to wait for my next post!
FYI I'm going to break this TR down to 4 or 5 parts. The first part, an introduction. Second part will go through Lake Manyara, Ngorngoro Crater and Ndtutu. Third part will be Serengeti. Fourth part will be gorilla treking in Rwanda. Fifth part, if necessary, will be the conclusion and other info. Also, next post will start with actual pictures so stay tuned.

Re: TSA will be enhancing security screening on Electronics
Maybe if your boarding pass says TSA Pre they'll give you a pass even in the regular lines.
Typically in those scenarios I tell the last TSA agent with the scanner that I'm pre-check and they stamp my boarding pass so I can keep my shoes on. It rarely affords me the right to keep my laptop in my bag though.

Re: Paperless Vrs Paper statements I always get the paper, despite their pleas for the environment. I do everything else on the computer or phone, but still prefer all my statements as paper. I think if they were digital I would just never get around to doing them. It also makes it easier to hand it off to my wife to look over if there is a questionable charge. After that, I shred them all.

Re: PSA: DO NOT BANK WITH CHASE OR YOUR CREDIT CARDS MAY GET CLOSED! I just find this whole thing hard to believe. I have to assume that there was something else going on like depositing checks much larger than their typical balances and paying off really high credit card bills that didn't commensurate with their salaries or direct deposits from employers.

Interesting analysis. If only westerns would realize that not everything that works well here, works well in other parts of the world, and that change needs to come at an appropriate pace in order to be successful.
I don't think anyone is arguing everything can work there. No one is talking about converting them to democracy. Let's start with basic things like letting women travel without permission from a male guardian. Pretty sure they are the only country to require that by law.

Re: Praise for El Al Thread has been reported to the mods. Please take your ElAl praise elsewhere! /s


But seriously, I don't see the big deal here. All airlines gate check when there is no room for additional carry on items. Seems like this agent was doing the same thing that a gate agent would do.
Not being a stickler about exact weight limits is nice.

Re: Juicy Miles Award Search I used it for 2 trip plannings. It makes life easier having one place to search as well as figuring out which transfer partners are cheapest for any given flight. Also nice that they display the taxes/fees most of the time. Only annoying thing was I planned an entire trip around some availability on JuicyMiles that didn't exist. They had it on all their star alliance partners but all were phantom in reality. AwardNexus and others did not show it as available.

Many Mediterranean diets mention the fact that it's a way of life which includes heavy socializing. Notice that they don't toss their elderly into old age homes where they wither away in a lonely life. They keep them in their homes where they are active participants of the family.
