Greens is not relaxing.
Lol. Actually, the last few weeks in the morning it has been nice and quiet.

I loaded my rav kav online and i see they charged my cc but the money wasn't loaded onto my card. What do i do?
Do you have a receipt? Why not send them and email or go to a kiosk? Or dispute it?

Any relaxing ideas for a couple, near jerusalem, morning hours?
TIA
Mamilla or old City tour with Tzvi satt

What? It normally crazy in the morning?
Greeens itself is not relaxing but taking "Greens" and bringing to a nice chilled spot aka. Finding somewhere close by like a quiet place in Gan Sacher can be.

During the year after 9 am I won't walk in there. For some odd reason the last few weeks have been quiet till at least 10.  But totally agree on the gan sacher idea.  Used to do that on Fridays.

Do you have receipt? Try Going to a Rav Kav office with your Rav Kav, receipt and ID ( passport) and ask to refund it or put the money on

Has anyone stayed at the Herbert Samuel reef hotel in eilat? Comments on it would be appreciated.
What about the kashrut there for breakfast?
What about kosher places to eat in eilat?

in the end it was refunded automatically.
