Ngorongoro crater should be top of your list. You should see if you have time for the Serengetti. Alternatively, Amboselli national park is a really solid park (it's on the Kenya side) and doesn't disappoint.

There are no kosher restaurants in Monte Carlo. In Nice we went to Meat Bar which is kind of an Israeli style place with burger, schnitzels, salads. I think they had shawarma too, I'm not sure.

Then the other night we went to Le Dauphin Bleu which has pasta, meats, salads, etc. A bit more upscale but not too fancy.

Food in both places was very decent.

In Cannes we were only there during the day and while the dairy place wasn't open yet for the season, we found this fast food style shawarma/falafel place called Rouvi that was very good. They had bagels, hot dogs, burger, schnitzel, shawarma...small little place with just a few tables but food was very good.

Super helpful, tnx. Le Dauphin is more upper scale than Meat Bar? I will probably try them both.

I wonder if the dairy place in Cannes is any good. Should I just go with Rouvi? Assuming they have Pareve options if I am there early in the day and don't want a huge meal?

Also did you make it to St. Paul De Vence? Wondering if it's as crowded as TA makes it sound....

Thanks for the quick response.
I agree with SF.

Also the medical care there is not what I would want in case of any issues that could arise with a newborn. I wouldn't consider it.


Any restaurant recommendations?

I was planning to go for 3 days
St Tropez for 1 day  (Ferry)
Monte Carlo for 1 day (Train)
and Cannes for another

If you go to Monte Carlo for the day
Parking seems to be a disaster maybe take a train there
Did you go yet? I am going soon. I read somewhere online that there are plenty of parking garages in Monaco however they are just costly. Is that the case?

That's a good idea. Prob worth it. How long would it take to take effect? My please pay by date on the Plat is 3/23 which makes the timing tight. Would it be active that quick that it would hold my points? I would presume that I'd get approved instantly.

How long after the AF posts can I get the fee refunded?

My AF on the biz plat just posted and i want to cancel without losing my points. Do I have any options of converting to another product that will allow me to transfer my points to miles? Being a charge card it seems I don't have many options.

I have the Amex everyday blue cash but they aren't allowing me to convert that to the points version because  they said you can't transfer from a cash back to MR. HUCA ? Any other ideas?

Thank you

How long do I have with Chase to downgrade the CSR after the AF hits to get it refunded?

I got an Israeli ticket from Cedar Financial in Calabasas CA as an agent for the Isaac Eilat law office. It said that Eilat send me many letters (didn't get any) and now it's been referred to their American agent.

Can I presume that it won't affect my credit if I don't pay? If there's a slight risk then I would certainly pay the 56 dollar fine.

My opinion for Havana would be to stay in a Casa somewhere in the old section of the city.

How long is it taking on average to get this card? Got approved yesterday. Online showing the payment due date is Jan 10th. Does that mean the statement will close Dec 10th? Any way to get the card expedited?
