Does any one know if the new rules are ok with you taking a rapid test or you need the PCR test for return flight to US?

Does anyone know where to get a Covid test when in Cancun, now that US will require it for all international travel back to the US?

Hyatt Ziva does not allow me to book 2 adults + 2 kids on one double room online using points. (Although it shows it can fit 4). If I book it for 2 Will they give me a problem when we show up with our kids? Anyone have this experience?
Try booking it with them on the phone. I was able to book that way when the system was giving me issues.

Just got back from our trip to Nashville. Really enjoyed and toured around to many sites. Regarding kosher food, We ate at Grins, Aryeh's Kitchen (Food Truck), AVO, and Woodlands Indian. We were also able to get wine at Wine Chap next to Publix Belle Meade. Grins had dairy food; sandwiches, wraps, mac and cheese, and salad. Food was good but expect a long wait to order and to receive order. Restaurant is in the Vanderbilt College campus. Aryeh's Kitchen (food truck) is also on the Vanderbilt campus. He has a couple items on the menu but food was good and the only meat place in or around Nashville. We happened to go on a day when he was extremely busy and he ran out of bread and forks :D We ordered the Shawarma and pulled beef sandwich. Portions are not very large even though we paid for double the beef. Avo is a very unique place. Its a fully vegan restaurant with a very interesting menu, unlike any I have seen before. We ordered the nachos and a different sandwich for each of us. Three out of four of us were happy with our meal. People were nice and food was good. Lastly we went to Woodlands Indian Cuisine. So to preface this, I have never been to an Indian restaurant before. The people are really nice and helpful but the food was not something we really liked. I guess I'm just not a fan of Indian food. It wasnt that the food was bad it just wasnt flavors and foods I really enjoyed.

In regards to tours, we traveled and toured everyday. On the first day we landed in BNA and checked into our hotel. After checking in and settling in we made our way to Nashville at about 4pm. We took a walk on Broadway passing all the bars and musicians playing stopping at a couple places to listen to the bands play. We then went over to the Music City Walk of Fame which is in a park near the Country Music Hall of Fame. Many stars of Country music singers, reminded me of the Hollywood walk of fame. At this point the sun began to set so we decided to take a walk over to the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge to catch the gorgeous sunset. With the sun reflecting off the water and Nissan stadium in the background on one side and the trees on the other side this was an awesome site to see. At this point we were hungry after a day of traveling we went on our way to Woodlands Indian.

The next morning we went on our way back to Nashville to began a full day of touring. We started with the RCA Studio B Tour and Country Music Hall of Fame ticket combo. We boarded a bus to RCA Studio B. Took a guided tour explaining the history of the studio. After the tour ended we were taken back to the Country Music Hall of Fame and spent the next couple hours going through the museum. Very interesting museum with so much to see. I am personally not a big county music fan but found this museum to be really nice and enjoyable. We then made our way over to Antique Archaeology (American Picker's Store) in the Marathon Motor Works building. Since we enjoy the tv show we figured why not check out the store. Things at the store are mostly pricey but we went to just take a look as fans. After we walked through the building stopping at a couple of stores and stumbled upon a Moonshine tasting. Tried some moonshine and continued onto our next stop the Parthenon. I visited the Parthenon in Greece but was really cool to enjoy this full size replica in Nashville. A great site to see. Made our way to AVO to eat and then went back to the Hotel for Shabbos.

After Shabbos we pre-purchased tickets to the Grand Ole Opry. If your able to go you should go. Packed house and a great experience. Singing was awesome and the place was rocking. Sunday Morning we began our trip to President Jackson's Hermitage. Huge piece of land Jackson purchased and lived on. Really enjoyable and historical. Guided tour through Jackson's Mansion and I recommend you take the Wagon tour as well through the property. We then went back to Broadway to listen to some more bands and called it a night. On Monday we started with the Nashville Zoo. Very big zoo with a lot to see. Some animals werent out because it was too hot. Overall really nice place. We then made our way to Nelson's Green Brier Distillery for a tour and tasting. Would highly recommend. Fun place, great guide, and great tasting. We then went to Aryeh's Kitchen for some food and went souvenir shopping and went back to the hotel. On Tuesday, out last day in Nashville we pre-booked a tour to Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, TN. One of the highlights of the trip. We booked the Angel tour and had a guided tour through the distillery and ended off with a tasting in the barrel house. This was Awesome, Fun, Enjoyable and worth the drive. At the end of the tour after you tasted five Jack Daniels Products you get to keep a really nice Glass bourbon cup. We shopped at their gift shop and had a bottle engraved for us. We then made our way to Grins to eat before we went to the Airport.
Overall we really enjoyed Nashville.

Credit Cards And Finance / Re: Amex Closed Accounts
« on: April 03, 2019, 10:33:18 PM »
You're not alone, but unfortunately you are without recourse.

Common denominator among those closed is that the card(s) were used at one of the merchants running a scam/ponzi scheme, e.g. Toner, Sterling, Caretech, etc., which is probably what AmEx meant by "charges identified as non goods and services."
I had the same thing happen to me yesterday. I never put large balances on my cards and never was late on a payment. Never used my card at one of those merchants? Is there really nothing that can be done to get the cards reactivated?
