Hi all,

Slightly strange question. Getting into LA 12pm on the 6th leaving 830pm on the 7th to PPT.
Does anyone have a freezer i can store 11 pom meals in a cooler for the duration I'm in LA? Several hotels I called already don't have a large freezer and I prefer to save money over staying in a larger hotel.
All help is appreciate. Tia!

Donít have a big enough freezer to accommodate you but Iím going to PPT that night as well!

Return was booked with AA on TN for 36k X2.
Correction for the LAX-PPT flight: Flying on AF booked through DL on MR portal (35% back).

Booking today my PPT-BOB RT flights for about 29k a person on UR portal since itís not showing up on either MR or Merrill portals.

Splurging and staying 5 nights at SR and one night at Conrad.

PPT-BOB RT in Y on Air Tahiti for 29k UR x2

For the record, they have totally redone the place based on your pics and it actually is quite fancy now, the ambiance is fabulous.
Yeah but even with the renovation, IME, the food still sucked.

Same for the way back too? Staying in MOZ or splurging to BOB?

Has that ever actually worked? Up to How much would they actually give?
Yes and YMMV. I think I remember hearing someone getting 8k. They also loan out points which you pay back overtime.

Call AMEX, if you have the card, and ask them. Sometimes as a courtesy they will give you a couple thousand.

Why is this an LA-specific question? There's no POM type meals in LA anyway.
Because I am asking for those who have experience when ordering it for trips leaving from LA... Ií am pretty sure Liederís and Western Kosher are options and was wondering if there were other options or wanted to hear peopleís experiences.

When going on a trip that doesnít have kosher food options where does everyone usually get there double wrapped frozen takeout food from when doing it homemade is not an option?

Thatís great. How long were you able to extend them? By calling Ritz Carlton directly I assume - or Chase?

Called the number on back of Ritz for the Elite Rewards Guest Services and they extended it for another year.

Everyone -

Has anyone ever stayed at any of the kosher safaris in South Africa (Etali / Kings, others)? Anyone know the standard of kashrus?

Also - is the area around Genesis hotel safe to walk around at night?

Thank you

I walked around Genesis (amazing hotel) at night and felt comfortable. Was told by the locals that the crimes donít really occur as much in that area and there are guards around at night.

I'm leaving Kruger in about an hour or so on the way back to joberg is there a shorter way to do the panorama drive? I'd like to make it back before the restaurants close (8ish)
Just made this (Panorama Route - Wiz https://goo.gl/maps/fBR7UxWCrus) on google maps for you of places that I was told to visit or had read about for stops on or near the panoramic route.

I just visited most of them when I was there a month or so ago and will hopefully provide more detail in the trip report. IMO 3 Rondavels View Point was by far the best stop.

Was just able to extend Ritz 3 free nights for 2nd year in row after a couple HUCAís. As usual they mentioned this is a ďone time exceptionĒ...

Any recent knowledge if these two are ok to eat in?

https://cancunkoshercenter.com/menu
http://www.redheifergrill.com/Menu

Can I assume that the prices here http://www.redheifergrill.com/Menu are in pesos and not dollars even though they have the $ symbol?

Both were open and were kosher whilst I was there a couple months ago.

Cancun kosher center is Dag Dag. Do not get the nachos as itís simply cheese sprinkled over chips and put in the microwave. Pizza is actually pretty good but I found both restaurants to be pretty pricey. Like many people here I happened to get the bad end of Red Heifer but many do have a good experience there.
