Trip Reports / Re: Vietnam with a mix of Israel

After spending some time at the kotel, I walked back to my hotel for a good Israeli breakfast which was excellent!


Outdoor breakfast @ Villa Brown Hotel


Lavish Breakfast @ Villa Brown Hotel


Omelet @ Villa Brown Hotel (6.8/10)


Best breakfast I've had in Israel, far superior to the huge buffets with unending mediocre dishes. Everything they served was excellent, and the mezze assortment seems to change daily. The chef was present all three days of my stay, is a real pro and friendly. Menu design by chef Meir Adoni (one of Israel's top chefs).

Zak's not open Shabbat

Wheres the best place to go to learn to use these programs?

Those programs are very different. Sketchup is quite simple to begin using, and as I recall had some very good tutorials accompanying it when it was released.

Who's going to try this https://www.sultankosherpalace.com/

Tried it a couple days after their getting hechshered. All the food was great, but took FOREVER. They were really overwhelmed. Plan to go back in a few weeks. I also find the Bucharim kind of fascinating, like ethnographically. They kind of keep to the themselves in Miami (or everywhere?) so it was fun to hang out with them there.

Friend is traveling on a QF J ticket MIA > DFW > SYD. Booked through Amex travel. He was notified by email that the Miami portion was cancelled. Called and they told him they can put him on another flight in coach. He's now in the air to Dallas. Won't be much time on the ground for him to deal with it there. What should he be asking for, and from whom? I know it's a little far fetched, but is there any chance they upgrade him to SYD in F?  ???
