Re: Marriot Bonvoy to Compete with AirBnB
Hyatt tried this and failed... They let you use points as a cash value that wasnt great. I think it was 10K points for $100 IIRC
10k points for $100 cash value would not be bad for Marriott points. Not at all.

Re: Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Ukraine 2018 Trip Report Trip Part 4- Hungary

Day 12: Hungary
After shachris and breakfast we headed out with a relative to tour the city. First stop was the glamorous Dohány Street Synagogue. After that we stopped in at the Chabad Shul just to say hi to the locals. Then we headed toward Buda passing the busy Váci Utca (Váci Street). Somewhere along the way, there were some tenty things set up by the government where workers were giving out free water. In bags! They were equipped with scissors to snip the edge for you so you can drink right out of it! Super strange! But hey, welcome to Hungary. We crossed the famous bridge between Buda and Pest, arriving at the foot of the Fisherman’s Bastion. One can either walk, take the rail car, or a shuttle up the hill. It was too hot to do the walk up, and the rail had a really long line, so we took the shuttle. Once we reached the top, we took some panoramic shots of the city, refilled our water bottle from a spout that I’d venture to say is from before WWI (but hey, it was dripping cold water!), and passed the President’s house. While passing, the Changing of the Guards was just beginning, so we stopped to watch that. Took about 3 minutes and was pretty cool.
We headed back to the apartment to pack up our things for our next stop, Ukraine. Our plan was to stop in Kerestir on the way and have supper there.

Passing the border from Hungary to Ukraine is a mini nightmare. We were lucky our driver was experienced with it, otherwise we might’ve still been waiting there. We finally crossed into Ukraine after mid-night. Interesting to note that the date of my entry stamp from Ukraine is a day after my exit stamp from Hungary… We were waiting so long in no-man’s land…

Re: Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Ukraine 2018 Trip Report Part 5- Ukraine

Day 13: Tuesday
We stayed in Mukachevo. We visited the Jewish Cemetery there. The Minchas Elazer of Munkatch is buried there. We walked around the place; the marketplace bearing delicious fresh fruits as in common in these hicktowns. There is an “Amusement Park” somewhere there with a Ferris Wheel that my grandma still remembers from her times… I think we were the only people in the entire park, except for someone cutting the grass. They started the ride specially for us. Each car has 2 half-circle shaped benches with a canopy and a wheel in the middle that you can use to turn the entire car. The cars are not enclosed and get locked with a little string that you can just open and jump out if you so prefer. The rickety ride was quite a thrill.
Later on, we drove out to a few little towns where some grandparents are buried. The streets are more potholed than not.
Somewhere along the drive, we stopped to at a gas station. After the guy there confirmed that there’s WC in the back, I went to take a look. As I’m coming up there, I see a little shed?garage?building? with 2 doors, one of them totally covered in leaves (poison ivy?). I opened the door and was greeted to !!!! A concrete floor with a hole in the middle! No windows either so good luck in there when you close the door!!! Just as a note, this gas station was really in the middle of nowhere, just fields for miles around. Maybe I should give them a bit of a benefit of the doubt?!?
Later we drove to Bishtene, to the kever of Reb Mordchele of Nodvorna. There’s a nice (newly built) shul there as well.
For supper we went to the Chabad Rabbi in Uzhorod who was hosting another family as well. We visited the old shul (today it’s owned by the government, I believe) and drove back to Mukachevo. Just as a by the way, Uzhorod has loose dogs roaming the place and barking loudly, not very pleasant.
As we were leaving Uzhorod, the car started making strange noises…

Day 14: Wednesday
Right in the morning, the car was dropped at the mechanic. A part was severely damaged from all the potholes we covered.
Having no car, we sought other activities. Now, Mukachevo is very “updated”. They have a version of a “mall”. Basically a 2-story building that has escalators(!) and some junk stores. On the second floor they have a bowling alley with some pool tables so we hung out there for a bit.
After that we took a taxi to the Palanok Castle, a few minutes’ drive away. The taxi had 2 amazing features which are not common in the states; a. no A/C, b. windows that you literally “roll down” with a handle. Good memories of the old times…. We didn’t actually find the castle itself so interesting, but, as it is built from stone, it happened to have been quite cool compared to the outside temperatures of about 95 deg F. Did I mention it was hot? Interesting: the torture chamber and a big well. There was actually a room (we needed to ask them to unlock it) in memory of the Jews of Mukachevo who were killed in the Holocaust. They had lists of all the people who were taken away and some pictures of Jewish life before the war. I’d venture to say that was the most interesting part of the castle. Oh, and the views were pretty good also. There’s an outdoor deck to view all the surrounding areas, and we were able to see pretty far.
We went back to the city and did some shopping; things are cheap there.
Finally, the mechanic called that the car is ready.
We drove back to Budapest, arriving very late after sitting at the border again for hours.

Aha so that's what's been going on in FL, those pictures I saw that I thought were people partying on the beaches were really just Jews davening...

Re: This is getting serious... a somber thread about COVID-19 You need to listen to your Doctors about your physical and health behaviors, you need to listen to your Rabunim about your spiritual and yiddishkeit behavior. Rabunim are not medicinal  or disease experts, they bear a total different responsibility, and let's not undermine that.

Re: This is getting serious... a somber thread about COVID-19
Op was saying how serious it is lo aleinu.

I remember discussing here on this thread maybe last week people saying oh it hasn't reached Lakewood yet...

It's a whole cognitive dissonance.. If the people didn't get it I understand, but the leaders ?!

When they clearly told you how fast this virus spreads have aggressive it is and it is impossible to detect At times because people spread it without seeming sick.

So then we have this Rabbi screaming about lavish weddings.

I am not sure why those are contraditory to anyone who believes in G-d.

Everyone should have been more careful and also should be introspective. If you don't feel you have this issue then just move on.

March 24, 2020, 10:30:31 AM
Re: This is getting serious... a somber thread about COVID-19
No harm felt. I don't ignore that I personally have a lot to improve upon, many of the things mentioned by others above apply to me. I do feel there's an additional important lesson to be learned from the complete inaction of our leaders, and I hope I am not saying this in a way that is assur. I think there was a lot of precautions that could've been taken that are far less drastic than closing shuls and yeshivas, and these precautions would have saved lives. Instead in most places we went from 0-60 in 2 seconds. Maybe the lesson is - that I and others are looking at the wrong things despite what my leaders tell me, so now they are blinded when we need them the most. I don't know.

While you and others were talking about this, the medical community did not do what it took to get things moving until it was that late. Once they did the rabbonim moved VERY fast and went, as you wrote, from 0-60 in 2 seconds. Until then it was not presented in a way that would have accomplished more than it did. On Sunday is when that finally changed and I knew then that things would move very fast.
