Any issues with yarmulke and tzitzis in Barcelona? I see @Yaalili mentioned no issues.
You should not have a problem. Itís the same as Manhattan or Miami. Some people may be antisemitic but most are tolerant and hardly take notice. And only  the Jews and Israeli tourists will have any idea what the tzittis are, or even care less.

Same way you'd avoid it in NYC or any other major city. Be conscious of your surroundings, and try to keep valuables in places that can't be easily picked.
+ 1
For example, when traveling, I like to wear a jacket with an inside zippered pocket for my wallet (and passports when not in the hotel safe). 
Back home, on the NYC subways or crowded streets, I have always just kept my wallet in my regular front pocket, staying aware, but without much concern. If I was a tourist, I would probably be more careful to heed travel guide warnings. After my recent visit to Spain, I felt that those warnings were way overdone, although it probably depends where and when you go.

If All the Seas Were Ink: A Memoir, by Ilana Kurshan.
If you have done the Daf Yomi cycle (I'm on my 4th), and are in the mood for an unconventional, albeit earnest, approach, to be taken with a grain of salt, you will enjoy this.

Funny thing, had a girl on shabbos afternoon.
מזל טוב 😀


There seem to be 2 Chabads in Milan with Shabbos hospitality: one with Rav Michael Elmaleh at Naar Israel piazza castello 5 and another with Rav Tzemach, Bet Hatalmud, via luigi soderini 35 with meals at via Francesco Carlini 5. Please post if you have any idea about either or both of these.

If I have one morning in Miami (2 adults), is there anything that's a must see?
Vizcaya is nice, google it and see if you find it appealing. Consider a walk or drive on Ocean Drive (or rent bicycles), or visit the iconic Fountainbleu Hotel.

We are planning a trip to Milan and nearby Lake Region and wonder if anyone can tell us about Shabbos hospitality with Chabad. How was it, where are they located, where did you stay, and how did you contact them? Also, which restaurants are best?

Heading to Milan from Israel for the weekend tomorrow morning (5/11/16). Spending first day in Milan Central (food, shopping), then heading to Como at night. Waking up in Como on Thursday with two (almost full - except travel for Shabbat) days to spend in the lake region. Was originally planning one day trip to Lake Lugano (Switzerland) as it is a 40 minute train from Como, and then on Friday, to do a boat tour of the Bellagio portion of the lake (with a stop in the town itself). Back to Milan on Friday afternoon for Shabbat where we will be staying at the Milan Marriott Hotel and being hosted for Shabbat meals by the Chabad house. Shabbat day we will simply walk around and see the main attractions (Duomo...) until Shabbat afternoon where we will be back to Chabad for meals. Saturday night all restaurants closed this time of year, so we will be getting kosher gellatto and then heading to MXP for a stay at Moxy Milan Malpensa for our Sunday flight at noon.
@ RafLiP How did this trip work out? How were the Chabad House meals?

We didn't do anything in Milan itself except sleep and eat (and walk along the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele near the PH)
we did 3 day trips - to Lake Como, to Stresa and the islands, and to Locarno
any questions about those places I'd be glad to answer
@ari9 Did you do the day trips by train or car? How long did the travel to each take? In retrospect, would it be better to sleep over in these places? I'm considering that but my main issue is kosher food outside of Milan. Thanks

Nice try, but thereís a great difference between a misrepresentation of fact and of future intention; and, more importantly, the whole thing does not start because we are not talking about contract negotiations/representations but, rather, just a letter threatening suit if payment due is not made.

Lol. What field do you practice?
Business litigation.
And if you can cite chapter and verse of where itís illegal I will eat my SPG Amex Card (which is also not illegal).
