Re: A Street Food tour in Hanoi

Travellinn ·
Thank you both for the feedback. I really think tasting the local food is an important part of the travel experience, even though I then have to taste a few strange things... And usually, I end up being pleasantly surprised that the thinks I was hesitating to taste, actually was really good. Heading to Thailand tomorrow, and I am sure I will be challenged a few times during my two weeks there :-)

Very good post. Looks like an interesting place. That's the beauty of getting negative opinions about someplace from others. You get to be pleasantly surprised when it turns out not to be so bad. For my wife and I it was Paris in the late 80s. So many people said how unpleasant it was. When we went there we had such a great time we extended our stay another 3 nights. We cannot wait to return again.

Re: St. Augustine FL. - The Old City

June 18, 1964, James Brock, the manager of the Monsoon Motor Lodge ( now destroyed) pouring acid on demonstrators attempting to desegregate the pool Great Piece Jonathan L! One thing I wish St Augustine would do a better job is telling what role St Augustine played in the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King got arrested in St Augustine on June 11th 1964 after picketing. His charge was unlawful assembly and civil disobedience. Many people say events that summer helped sparked the Civil...

Thanks Travel Rob. In fact there are several info boards in and around Plaza de la Constitucion that do discuss the civil rights era history. Not just MLK's arrest, but more than one large demonstration that took place.

There are info boards at the beaches too but certain things they didn't preserve, like the Monsoon Motor Lodge, now a Hilton. Martin Luther King Ave, Downtown is one street named after Dr. King where he had marched.

Re: A Street Food tour in Hanoi

PHeymont ·
Thanks for a great (virtual) meal! I love street food (and near-street) and just enjoyed a similar experience in Istanbul, where I put aside my "issues" with some foods and tried all...including my equivalent of the worm: kokorek, a dish of lamb or goat intestines roasted around sweetbreads. It's amazing how much of our hesitation can be in our heads, not in reality... Hope to see more about Vietnam!

That sure looks like a tasty evening, Linn! I've done a few food tours in my life and really enjoyed them. The guides know where the great spots are and you get a nice background narrative about the dish, the restaurant and the chef! Thanks for sharing this with us.

Re: Clashing Views: Who's responsible for fees and misery?

I have to disagree with Megan McArdle on this.US Domestic fares and fees have been going up because of less competition in airline fares because of the mergers. The public has few reasonable alternatives.

Re: Valletta, Why Do I Love Thee So?

The island of Malta became part of the British Empire in 1800. The French had invaded Malta 2 years previously and were unwelcome. The British removed the French and established a base there at Valletta to give them a port in the Mediterranean Sea. And it provided employment and security to the local people. In 1964 it voted for Independence. The Coat of Arms of Queen Victoria can be seen over the VICTORIA GATE photo - above. The current Queen Elizabeth ceased any connection with Malta in...

Re: July 11, 2018: New Orleans Streetcars

George G. ·
Pittsburgh residents also call them streetcars. They were such an easy way to get around when I was a youngster. Not sure if the city has them any longer, but I took the German Strassenbahn's many times during my 18 years of living in that country. Unlimited weekly tickets made it a breeze to get around the cities.
