Seen in my Shul's shaimos box. Now I'm wondering which member of our small community went.

Not sure if I should be honored or insulted ;D.

Or it was the guy who didn't feel like having to explain to every shabbos guest that he spent $20k to go. I have nothing against going, but I can certainly understand why one would want to keep it quiet.

Why not? He's getting rid of the one piece of evidence that might very well end up on his shabbos table.

FWIW, I was at a shabbos table this week hosted by a guest on the cruise. She took out 8 such benchers, apparently collected from what others left behind on the ship.

We brought along over 100. Everyone got one in their gift bags, and then we put out the rest during the Shabbos meals. Most people took home a bunch.

So one of the stops we made was to Argentina's Base Brown station. I'm editing pictures now and the opportunity was just too good to pass up:

Even better would be if you Photoshop in that pic of Levi putting tefillin on Andrew behind the sign, and maybe also Harper with his yarmulke ... even though he was separated from our group. :)
