Re: Fin Del Mundo - the unofficial DDF Exclusive TR 4. Sunday night

At around 8:15pm (23 hours after leaving home in NYC) we finally arrived to the “Los Cauquenes Resort” for the official start of our “Kosher Antarctica” expedition.



This beautiful hotel is situated on the banks of the Beagle Channel, with great views all the way to Chile. The hotel is a member of ”SLH” and I’m guessing @Dan was hoping that it would be part of World of Hyatt by the time of our trip, but doesn’t look like any SLH in South America joined World of Hyatt. Upon arrival we were all greeted by @Something Fishy & @Dan. The reception had all room cards ready, and the hotel’s staff started to offload the luggage from the bus and later took them to everyone’s room.




 
At 8:45pm everyone gathered in the hotel’s dining room for dinner, where there was a gift bag waiting for everyone with a Menorah & trip memorabilia.







@Something Fishy & @Dan made a joint welcome speech
 


& then (Rabbi?) @Moishebatchy started the “רוחניות” part of the trip with a siyum (seems like @Moishebatchy makes on average .78 siyums per week).



After dinner there was some fruit for snack



& we all went on the deck to watch the beautiful long sunset over the Beagle Channel, taking pictures while bothering @Something Fishy “is this a nice picture?” “this is the way to take pictures?”.













We then davened Mariv and then everyone per their minhang started to light the Chanukah Candles, singing together הנרות הללו into the night.





That day in Ushuaia was extremely hot and the rooms had no A/C so I asked the front desk if they had fans, and he just answered me “open the window, there are no mosquitoes” (as he knew that I was going to ask him that as Argentina is a Zika listed country on the CDC’s site - but I had anticipated no Zika as 10 miles west Chile had none so I knew it can’t be Ushuaia does have).

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
Time to start your own podcast!
Great idea. Who knows, if it becomes popular Dan could then start giving public seminars. :)

Re: Over The Top Purim Parties
I love how easy it is for everyone to be such a kanoi about something that they wish they had the nisayon of not doing.

"Oh no, not me, I don't want to be wealthy and if I was I would just give the tzedaka anyway without the other stuff" Sure sure, keep telling yourself that.

When I see Over The Top Weddings/Bar Mitzvah's or even Brissn, I say I wish I would have the ability to afford such an event along with the brains not to make such an event.

Re: Re: The Funny/strange/interesting/random Tweets Thread My son, traveling on spring break with his a cappella group, connecting through DFW this afternoon, sent this message to my daughter, because I think they must be having a conversation:

“I got 6 friends into 3 different lounges tell dad”-zow’s son.

Re: Kosher Meals - Can we do better?
Someone started a petition about KSML
Don't think it will help much.

Change.org is like complaining online. It feels good but has no real effect.

Re: How Many Passport Stamps Do You Have? Any Unique Or Special Ones? I don't mean to brag, but I have 297 stamps in my current passport. I tried making a gif but there are just too many pages.

I can have @jj1000 or @Dan verify it (they may have seen it already, but can send them a video)

I challenge anyone to beat me.
