> Its a heart says 'yes', head says 'no' situation for me personally.
Me and my wife were visiting the UK a couple months ago and our tour guide for the Isle of Skye put it the exact same way when we asked him about it.
PS: This was my tour guide. If you are going to Skye, Donald is who you want. He was the best guide out of our whole trip to the UK.
Edit: Looking up Donald on tripadvisor has made me sad. I loved it over there so much and looking at all the pictures makes me want to quit my job and move over there. Me and my wife have already decided that's where we want to retire.
East St. Louis - Before I knew how bad it was, I stopped at a random hotel there on a road trip. I walked into the lobby, saw a sketchy guy sitting on a couch that made me think, "drug dealer", and the girl at the desk took one look at me and said "I don't think you want to stay here." This was immediately followed by a crazed looking lady running down the hallway shouting "he's got a gun! he's got a gun again!". I took the clerk's advice and left :)
Here is the link on trip advisor - http://www.tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g303808-d4129163-Villa_Sonia_Teo_Hvar_Croatia-Hvar_Hvar_Island_Split_Dalmatia_County_Dalmatia.html
Edit: As spidersnake has pointed out, if you hover over the picture a message does come up stating that the pool is under construction.
Wow. Pretty much all the reviews for this place on trip advisor make some mention of the parking. What the hell is going on in this cove?
The family castle is now a bed and breakfast run by her parents. According to this TripAdvisor review, Rose makes a lovely chicken dinner.
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens
Cape Town Central, South Africa
if you're fluent in Japanese this is their page, otherwise here's the tripadvisor page
You went to this place: Cross Club.
Someone had the exact same experience as you apparently. There's probably a lot of drug dealers going around knocking on the doors to make sales. I've stayed in some sketchy as shit hotels in the Los Angeles area but they were all better than that. The cost of living is much lower in the Midwest and South but the poor areas out there seem to be almost third world. It's honestly kind of amazing.
It's funny, if you look at the reviews for Daigo-ji temple on Trip Adviser you'll see almost all the "poor" and "average" reviews are in Japanese, while the "Excellent" reviews are in English:
Japan is unimpressed with Japan.
make sure you go here:
They speak a bit of English, and man, it's an experience! I love this place.
True "izakaya" experience. The energy of the staff is astounding and unforgettable. I went there a few times a year.
Also, in Shinsen (near Shibuya) there is an amazing place called Kaikaya
They've got an English menu and the food is amazing.
I lived in Tokyo for 6 years up until 3 months ago and eating is my hobby. Feel free to message me for any other advice!
Thanks for the plug /u/JasmynMoon and /u/thr0wfaraway ! :)
And yes, we are 100%, unequivocally Not Toddler Friendly....but we are friendly.
Since we're talking reviews here...I'll take the opportunity to insert this shameless link to our kickass TripAdvisor page
Apparently they do at 19 Nathaniel Maxilluli Street, Swakopmund, Namibia.
The first review: "One of our fav's - staff are friendly. Good atmosphere when busy but if a quieter night - food is still yummy so worth it. Love the Nam twist on Mexican - its not for the purists but you're not in Mexico. Will keep going back - even with the new menu that took my fav filling away."
Wow. Tacos errywhere.
Here's the best/worst part:
The reviews for the place are awful:
People don't go for the food, or the decor, or because a famous chef works there. No one is showing up because there's no other restaurant open in NYC when Nello is.
They're just going there to show off.
They're paying $50k for a terrible meal so they can be seen doing it.
The human ego-motive is simple, but the disconnect from how everyone else lives is stunning.
If it makes you feel any better you can go to Tunisia and sleep in Luke's childhood home. Hotel Sidi Driss is the Lars family residence.
Right until you say "well a card is all I have, so take it or you get nothing" (which is the law in Chicago). Then amazingly it works!
>The City of Chicago requires that all non-independent taxis accept credit cards. (almost all cabs in the city are affiliated) However, when trying to pay with a credit card it is not uncommon for the driver to say something like "Sorry the machine is down," especially if they believe that you may be a tourist.
Took some digging but this is the best I could find the trip website with address
And the national park the sculptures reside in
From what I can tell, hotels with no reviews at all are at the bottom of the rankings. I found only one reviewed hotel with a worse rating, America's Best Inn Birmingham. There is actually one of these in the general area of my office park, it is meth/prostitute city. We call it America's Worst.
Here's the review -- for the Alexandra Hotel in Weymouth, England
FYI: It's Loveland on Jeju Island, South Korea.
If you ever go to Jeju, try the horse sashimi and black pig and mandarin makgoelli at Mawon
The Colosseum was held together by nails until they removed them because they needed the iron to make weapons. The whole thing is now an accident waiting to happen.
> Wow, it looks like such a creepy, but very beautiful place to visit. It must have felt like stepping back in time. I'd love to take a tour one day.
If you do visit, and if you prefer a 'real' experience, I recommend the place I stayed in. My room, although small: had my bed in the city's wall fortifications, and my windows were arrow slits. Truly a unique feeling! Also, the owner gives free booze and bicycles for exploring the town, plus the most amazing organic breakfast you ever had. Although I live in nyc, and pay $ 30/lb for imported prosciutto, and $ 20/lb for imported cheese, still is not the same.
And why would you post it in AnimalPorn?
Looks like its from this place: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g297924-d942775-Reviews-Tiger_Temple_Thailand_Tour-Kanchanaburi_Kanchanaburi_Province.html
Stone is bringing in a lot of revenue to the San Diego area. Their beer gardens certainly bring in some tourist revenue for the area. They are distributing a ton of other beer for other breweries in the Southern California area that wouldnt otherwise get the exposure.
Now is all of this worth a $33 million dollar subsidy? Couldnt tell you. But they are definitely one of the big players in the whole "craft-beer" movement. Some would argue they've already grown to the point of eclipsing that as well.
AN ENVIABLE ATTEMPT AT WHAT I CAN ONLY ASSUME IS YOUR FIRST WORLD SERIES TRASHTALK (YOU GUYS ARE SO CUTE). BUT YOUR REGULAR SEASON SHENANIGANS (AND POSTSEASON AGAINST THE LOL DODGERS) CARRY NO WEIGHT HERE.
THIS IS EVEN-YEAR POSTSEASON GIANTS YOU'RE UP AGAINST.
OH AND I GOOGLED "FUN THINGS TO DO IN KANSAS CITY" AND #6 OUT OF 101 WAS A MEMORIAL GARDEN. A FUCKING GARDEN. I CAN ONLY ASSUME THE OTHER 95 ARE PUTTING VARIOUS SORTS OF WEAPONRY IN YOUR MOUTH AND PULLING THE TRIGGER.

Also, the reviews at Trip Advisor (yeah, I didn't even know that there was more than one hotel in Pyongyang) are an interesting read.
Just to add: the statue is placed at Shibuya Station, the same station where Hachiko waited every day until his death.
If you're ever in Tokyo and find yourself in the Shibuya area, pay Hachiko a visit! http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g1066456-d553408-Reviews-Hachiko-Shibuya_Tokyo_Tokyo_Prefecture_Kanto.html
I sold that business, and no longer have access to the Yelp business page. However, the traffic did not drop. It just did not increase - at all. Literally $350 or whatever it was a month down the tubes for nothing.
Google Adsense was a much better investment, as were Facebook ads. People actually noticed those and came in.
As far as reviews, our store had and has under the new ownership great reviews on every other review source out there. Compare:
Note the 4 really bad reviews that all came in after we stopped being a subscriber. Nothing similar was found on TripAdvisor. Coincidence? Doubtful.
This does not show the 2 or 3 reviews I reported that are either hidden or removed or whatever happened to them. All in the same time frame.
Edit: Also, regarding your comment about someone "punishing" a former advertiser. There need not be a "someone" - its probably automated in your system. If you guys are truly legit, you should publish the algorithm and put all of this to bed once and for all. The fact that you don't, or won't, just adds fuel to the fire.
I studied abroad in Germany but spent about a week in Florence...One of my friends got a bucket of water pourd on her by an old italian lady trying to sleep. I got kicked out of an apartment for vomiting red wine all over a bathroom, only to stumble drunkenly (and barefoot!) through Florence. I swear I walked by Il Duomo like 15 times trying to find my hostel. It just kept showing up. Good times...
PS: go to Gusta Pizza.
I could not disagree with you more. There are things to do in pretty much every major European city and the surrounding towns. If you were bored, it's probably because you came unprepared or lack the resources (language/money) locally to do more. I like to schedule days during a vacation where I do nothing but ask for and take recommendations from people who live in the city. You get way more out of it that way.
At any rate Amsterdam is far from boring.
Apparently a lot of people have had really bad experiences with fines in this particular car park.
Yes, it most certainly does. I have sat in the forests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda and watched the mountain gorillas snack on them in person. Here, under the lists of things to bring even Trip Advisor suggests wearing long pants, saying "You need to wear long pants whilst walking in the bush due to stinging nettles."
This really depends on how much traveling and shopping you want to do and your standard of accommodation. I don't have a lot of money so I flew with Delta and from LAX to HND. The round trip cost $1989. You can get cheap accommodation for as little as $40 per night. You'll need a 7 day JR Pass for bullet train transportation and that cost about $240. I had only $1500 on me and it was more than enough for the week I spent there. I didn't do much shopping. I was there to see my mother.

Been here. This is Takaragawa Onsen in northern Gunma prefecture. Every bit as awesome as it looks. Usually more people in the bath as it's a popular location.
The name engraved is the name of the sculptor.
>Einar Jónsson (May 11, 1874 – October 18, 1954) was an Icelandic sculptor, born in Galtafell, a farm in southern Iceland.
inar's works fall into three general categories. First, there were the public monuments that he was commissioned by the government to produce. The second group was private commissions that he obtained, consisting of portraits and cemetery monuments. The third collection consisted of the private works that he labored over as he became increasingly and deeply spiritually attuned and reclusive. In this large body of works Einar's spiritual nature is clearly seen, though it is often difficult to describe. The themes for these works are frequently drawn from Christ's consciousness, deep Cosmic spirituality like the eternal, infinite body and consciousness of the universe or God, Icelandic Mythology (Understanding of the so-called Norse mythology or North-East, North-West and even Central-European War-Godhs mythology is just a part of Icelandic Mythology and understanding or description of these is mostly derived from the Icelandic one) and Icelandic folk tales. Einar's world is populated by Elfs, "Hidden people" or "Huldufolk", Vættir, Jötnar, angels and trolls, by beautiful women and bold warriors, and most of all a layer of symbolic content that can invariably be felt, but not always understood.
1909 is when he moved back to Iceland from his studies.
This piece is in a museum that is dedicated to his work in Iceland.
You can see some of the sculptures at this trip advisor site for it.
There might be a Norse / Icelandic story behind it.
EDIT: reads down - looks like /u/wonderlandrabbit found it.
> do not ever go to Ciudad Juarez
Boy do I have some bad news for you: The American Embassy at Ciudad Juarez is the only embassy in Mexico that processes immigrant Visas. The local clinics around, 5 of them IIRC are the only ones allowed to process your health checkup.
You don't get to much of a choice.
There's even a report of someone in TripAdvisor who said that they were caught by Hurricane Irene and was unable to make it due to the state declaring an emergency and they were still charged. The owners said that there was nothing wrong with the weather. Read the hilarity here.
I've been wondering the same thing for a while now. With all the Argentinian restaurants here in A'dam you would almost think there was some kind of a special connection (e.g. former colonization) between Amsterdam and Argentina, although I'm pretty sure that is not the case...
I found this page about the same topic on trip advisor and the most plausible explanation IMO is what commenter no. 7 says, and I quote:
"There are many Argentinian "restaurants" in Amsterdam quite simply because the steak & chips formula works the best in the big touristic centre Amsterdam is and gets most revenue. If you want to make a money with a small restaurant in Amsterdam without wanting to invest 100 000's of €, you cover your place in goat skin and put a big sign above the door "Argentinian Restaurant."
In short, the Argentinian restaurants seem to be a way to earn some easy money from naive tourists.
The prettiest and my favorite part was seeing the "Schwarzwald" or Black forest. It was so beautiful, especially in the late spring time.
If you like history, Berlin is a natural choice.
You can do almost anything. I work as an engineer and architect, and their style of architecture is really fascinating.
The food is amazing, you will absolutely gain 10 pounds and not regret it.
Frankfurt has some of the best food places, my favorite restaurant was "Bockenheimer Weinkontor", I found a like with details
Anything you would like to ask about? I was there for about 10 weeks, and got to see a lot and experience awesome stuff.
Don't get me wrong, ''L'Avenue'' is pretty decent place to have brunch or breakfast, but I think it became a victim of it's own popularity. The food isn't as good as it used to be a few years ago. I'd still go but wouldn't wait in line.
I'd recommend ''Pistou'' and ''La petite marche'' if you go in the week-end (anything in the brunch menu is awesome)
Totally looks like a place for kids.
Also, check the reviews for one by someone who sounds like the same woman. Surprise, it's the one star review.
I've seen this and it is pretty ridiculous looking in person. I googled it to find a picture to link here and thought this was very fitting: Nicolas Cage's tomb
Honestly I wish I knew. I got it at this restaurant D'Napoli when I was visiting Trieste: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g187813-d3348642-Reviews-D_Napoli-Trieste_Province_of_Trieste_Friuli_Venezia_Giulia.html
>They were originally warehouses that were later converted into private residences in the 17th century. Due to the lack of space, they built the kitchens "hanging" over the Damsterdiep canal - a practical solution which also allowed the housewives back then, to collect the water for cooking directly from the canal and after the washing up, to throw the water out the kitchen window back into the canal.
We visited an olive mill during a recent trip to Italy. We bought some of the oil there and it is far and away better than anything I've found on the shelves of our (American) grocery stores.
So... When I ran out of what we bought on site, I emailed the lady I met at the olive mill and asked if she'd send me some. Turns out, she was very happy to do it! Only problem is the high shipping costs (70 Euro) - the oil itself isn't really all that expensive, especially considering its quality (about 15 Euro per liter.)
Still, for about $120, I have 3 liters of top notch olive oil that I use sparingly enough that it will probably last more than a year, even though I gave about 1/3 of it away as Christmas gifts.
The oil we bought comes from this farm in Chianti. If you want her email address, PM me and I'll send it to you.
I agree that it is not a huge amount of money but just the fact that it is a scam should piss you off a little bit. I am honestly very surprised at the man's reaction to call the individuals very pleasant.
This people are not pleasant at all. They act as if they are. But they are part of a mafia and won't hesitate to use violence against anyone attacking their business.
Saturday I was going to take the subway at people square and wanted to save a tourist from the scam. As he was taking a picture of 4 young chineses (2 guys and 2 girls) I went to him to tell him to not trust them and not follow them anywhere. Immediately after, one of the chinese left the group to come and insult me saying I was "so stupid" and "killing his business". 2 other guys came over and I received two kicks and was ordered to leave inside the subway. They didn't care that it was the middle of the day in people square.
It is not just me, other people tried to save tourists from the scam and received the same threats. Just look at the testimonies here : http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g294211-i642-k5727594-o10-Tea_room_scam_in_Shanghai-China.html
"They started following us everywhere, making phone calls and telling us that their friend was about toarrive, he even told me that he would kill us that it was useless to tell the police"
"We decided to go and tell the tourists that they were about to get scammed. As I went over the ring leader tried to break off and stop me from coming over. She recognized me from the morning and tried to be friendly at first and said I should come and help her friend. About 30 seconds later she attacked me with her umbrella and asked me if I wanted to loose and eye or a leg and swore at me a number of times."
I hope this story will change your perspective about these people and that no matter how much money they rip you off, these people are anything but pleasant. No one should have any tolerance for what they are doing.
Here is an informative article that touches on Cuban wages.
Cubans make around twenty dollars a month. I believe salary depends on profession, correct me if I'm wrong. Skilled professions earn slightly more. It sounds low, but Cubans only have several dollars in bills, because housing, healthcare, food, electricity, water, education, etc, are public services and virtually "free".
Number one in this list helps explain also why it is misleading to quote Cuban salaries in dollars. Cost of living is much, much lower.
Tipping is a big one. When in doubt, tip, because it's a part of the culture here and it's how a lot of servers, bartenders, hairdressers, and cabbies make their living. It doesn't matter if you think it's a stupid custom (I agree!). It doesn't matter that most of the rest of the world doesn't do it. Read some tipping guides, and follow them. And welcome to NYC! This place is awesome.
So I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday. It had been a while since I had been to the Temple of Dendur (I never had much of an interest in ancient Egyptian history honestly) but my friend really wanted to see it so we went and I have to say that I never noticed all of the nineteenth century graffiti on that thing. It's seriously everywhere, I found a couple photos of it here and here. My favorite was the one that said "1891 NY US", I really wonder how shocked that guy would be to find the Egyptian temple he carved his name into made it's way all the way back to his home city.
The best part though was the Islamic and South Asian art sections. I spent forever looking at the various Quranic manuscripts, Persian rugs and of course the Mughal miniatures. Then I ate a chicken kebab in the rain, so it was a pretty good day.
Edit: since it's sort of relevant to my post, plug for /r/southasianart
In linea di massima hai ragione: ma questo è un coglione.
Un utente su tripadvisor gli lascia 3 stelle (giudizio medio) scrivendo:
>Non male! Premetto che vengo da Caserta (prov) ed essendo vicina a Napoli sono abituata ad una pasta per la pizza diversa, più "morbida" con un cornicione doppio che preferisco!
Tuttavia, non posso lamentarmi, pur essendo questa pizza più "croccante". Ho assaggiato quella con lo speck e con il bre e l'accostamento di questi due ingredienti mi è piaciuta moltissimo.
Il prezzo è più alto rispetto alle mie zone poichè una singola pizza, una coca cola, patatine e acqua naturale sono costati 18 €, prezzo più alto rispetto a quelli a cui sono abituata.
L'ambiente è rustico e smplice ma il personale è molto cortese.
Utente campana scrive che ha apprezzato la pizza, dà una recensione tutto sommato positiva, mette tre stelle. Risposta del proprietario:
>La prossima volta che sara' a spasso per Brescia , magari mi rendera' partecipe di che tipo di Pizza le piace .... cosi' magari le potrei spiegare , dopo una tradizione che ha piu' di mezzo secolo, alcune cose riguardanti la pizza... cosi' magari , capendo certe cose , forse rivedra' alcuni gusti.
Texan here. There was a large migration of Czechs to central Texas and now kolaches are everywhere.
If you're wondering, yes, kolache dough DOES contain more cream cheese and butter than flour.
food in rome is famously terrible if you don't know where to go, just like in paris and other touristy big cities. tourist traps and assorted crap are everywhere, with an abundance of overpriced shitty pizza and pasta.
you may want to look around the web to find the good stuff, authentic roman cuisine.
as for pizza, if you can, endure a couple hours of train to naples and you'll have all the pizza you'll ever want .
In countries like India even the McDonalds and KFCs serve 'Chicken tikka burger' 'McSpicy Paneer' and Veggie Zinger burger. TGIFs are pretty much the same.
But there were some rare gems here and there like 'Le Club' at Pondicherry and Sparky's at Chennai who served absolutely marvelous stuff. The lasagna at sparky's especially was to die for. Felt like I am back in the US.Pics http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g304556-d1059051-Reviews-Sparky_s_Diner-Chennai_Madras_Tamil_Nadu.html#photos
Unfortunately the owner died last year and the place closed.
Not just restaurants. Taxis. Bartenders. Housekeeping. Bell hops. Spa treatments. Strippers. You'd be much better off reading this guide: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g191-s606/United-States:Tipping.And.Etiquette.html
In LA, 15-20% is standard.
This is where we stayed :) When you purchase a package, they take care of everything with you to make sure you don't forget anything or get stranded anywhere. They also provide you with a list of fun adventures and things you can do both on the island and on the mainland. I really, really recommend it! There are other resorts along all of those cayes, and I HIGHLY recommend Belize! It's currently their rainy season though, so take that into account!
Dude stop at Cassis just after Marseille. We should have decent weather this week. Take the "route des crètes" road from Cassis to La Ciotat.
First Stop is on top of Cap Canaille Mountain, with a HUGE view on Cassis Bay... On a clear day, you won't regret it.
It appears to be Villa Vizcaya "on Biscayne Bay in the present day Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida," and not abandoned after all.
Also TripAdvisor photo
Hey man. This is kinda funny for a local, but it makes so much sense that you seem confused.
Let me explain: motels in brazil/sao paulo are places that charge for a small period of stay -- like you said. But the thing is: they're not for sleeping. They're for sex. No joke. They aren't "motor hotels" like in the US/anywhere else.
You should look for a Hotel. There are cheap options! Ibis is one chain of hotels that is good and reliable. They have a hotel in Avenida Paulista and another in Rua da Consolação, for example.
The Polar Park in Northern Norway is one such place. Used to be called Polar Zoo.
Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning is the tallest educational building in the western hemisphere.
Also, the inside will make you feel like you're at Hogwarts
Up until 2009 you didn't need a passport to get to Canada.
I used a birth certificate and a drivers license last time I went.
Here's Green Plaza Shinjuku Capsule Hotel in Tokyo.
A comment says
>For the single traveler a capsule hotel can be a decent budget option at a cost of 2500-3500 yen.
Here http://gojapan.about.com/cs/accommodation/a/tokyocapsule1.htm says
>Capsule hotels are unique accommodations developed in Japan. It usually costs from 2,500 yen to 4,500 yen per night.
2500 yen = 32 US dollars = 26 euro = 20 British pounds
4500 yen = 57 US dollars = 46 euro = 37 British pounds
So, you don't get much, but you don't have to pay much for it either.
125,000 times the rooms have been rented.
0.0005% of tenents arrested 62. 62/20=3.1 people arrested each year.
I tried counting the parking spaces of the motel, it looks like they have close to 40 rooms.
But...Upon further research
-Known for drug use and prostitution with constant police patrols
"Tewksbury Police made nine arrests involving four separate incidents at the Motel Caswell, 450 Main St., over the weekend.
The arrests resulted in charges including larceny of a motor vehicle, drug possession, minor in possession of alcohol and several outstanding warrants."
So the reasoning behind the police being angry could be justified. I still do not like the idea of them taking property though.
I ordered this in Poland once. The pricing in the restaurant was by the 100/g. I ordered 500/g, which in my mind was a pretty healthy portion. The waitress sort of huffed at me, and said "Sir, the minimum order is 1 kilogram".
Oh my god it was awesome. Podwale in Warsaw for the curious.
People and Dinosaurs living together - just one of their many fine exhibits.
This is no place for a public school to go.
You should try Vernon's BBQ if you've never been. Currently ranked on Tripadvisor as #17 best restaurant in St. Louis, #1 best in U-City, and #4 best BBQ.
Here is one I stumbled across while hitchhikeing through Reno NV. It's a massive (164ft) lead wall that goes up the side of a hotel.
actually the GA Tech conference center hotel is pretty nice I stayed there for a work thing a few years back. It's right by the Cheetah if you are into that sort of night life as well. GT Hotel
I also like the W Midtown on 14th, stayed there many times
Parking on Campus is a mess, same as most campuses, use Uber or a cab you'll be better off unless your conference has a special area/lot or parking pass
Visit the George Mitchell Nature preserve and go on a hike! Or go to the Lake and feed ducks. Stop by Republic Grille, get the chicken salad with jalapeno ranch and drink a yellow rose with it. DELICIOUS.
We're not travel agents.
The thing that has always gotten to me about this one is that after her body was found, I saw an article that included a quote from one of the guests who had been staying at the hotel during that time who mentioned that the water came out of the taps brown and smelling terribly like rot. Later, when I looked up the hotel, the TripAdvisor page came up. I clicked on it and found that in quite a few of the reviews, many from well before Elisa Lam ever stayed at the Cecil, guests were complaining about water issues. Poor water pressure, brown or black water, and smells of rot. Reviews like this one, this, and this all mention problems with the water in the Cecil Hotel before Elisa Lam wound up in the water tank. Made me wonder if there were others before her.
Have a look at the r/Scotland official tourist sticky!
All seriousness aside, when asked for completely generic tourism advice, there are several places we love to recommend: Chester, Ypres, Ghent and Buckfast Abbey are standouts. You'll see.
> Min första tanke är att nej, jag kommer inte sätta mig i en sådan buss och köra den. Jag har själv invandrarbakgrund och vill inte åka runt med sådana meddelanden.
Så i Turkiet står man för de rätta sakerna och i Sverige har man "sådana meddelanden"!
”Mindre invandring här, mer hjälp till flyktingar där.”
Nu verkar det som att många flyttar ut istället för in i Turkiet.
Annars har den statliga policy om "invandring" varit att döda kurder som inte skall få existera även om de levt där i evigheter.
Så tolerant, lite som att Sverige skulle utrota Samer, nej, exakt så.
”Krafttag mot brottsligheten, mer stöd till brottsoffer”.
> A June 2008 report by the Turkish Prime Ministry's Human Rights Directorate said that in Istanbul alone there was one honor killing every week, and reported over 1,000 during the previous five years. It added that metropolitan cities were the location of many of these, due to growing Kurdish immigration to these cities from the East.
Finns ju inget behov av krafttag där heller tydligen, bara oskyldiga barn som mördas.
”Stoppa det organiserade tiggeriet”
> Do not give to street beggars.I know that sounds harsh but...yes,there are gangs,there are fake beggars probably better off than you or I and there are groups who send their kids out begging.By giving money you are helping to keep this system alive.
Verkar inte vidare populärt med tiggargäng i Turkiet, rasistiska Turkar, de borde jobba på sin tolerans av de fina människorna.
Oavsett, det spelar ingen roll om du så är invandrad från yttre rymden, du är anställd att köra buss, kör bussen.
Alternativt kan du alltid gå till arbetsförmedlingen och söka nytt jobb, om du insisterar att förhindra demokratiska processen finns det även jobb i Turkiet för att följa den tankesmedjan.

And, Cochran, just because you cite the source doesn't mean you're allowed to steal and repost an entire article on your website.
I can't imagine separating baby tigers from their mothers to allow visitors the novelty of bottle-feeding them is ideal, either. Same goes for switching out babies because it looks funny.
I just can't find this adorable. I'm actually pretty disappointed that the consensus seems to be "but... look at them! so cute!"
edit: I found some TripAdvisor reviews, most people seem to hate it. The first review is kind of misinformed, but there was a pretty depressing picture of one of the starving cubs (they keep them starving so people can bottlefeed them) along with it.
>Trump hotels rank at the top.
US Weekly ranks the Chicago and NY hotel 71 and 82 respectfully. And Tripadvisor doesn't even have any Trump hotel in the top 25.
The zoo down towards Carolina Beach past Monkey Junction? Never been but I've heard it's pretty bad, and honestly the sketchy facade has been enough to keep me away.
Regardless, reviews seem to be average-to-poor:
Its a bit daft to judge a whole airline because of one incident don't you think?
Plus Qatar have their fair share of terrible reviews anyway.
Edit: Also 62% of people who did reviews for British airways on trip advisor said they would recommend them. That might not sound great, right? Well Qatar was even lower at 60%. I just don't know if some people assume some airlines are better than others even if they haven't ever flown on them.
Here's a better photo.
So it's lacón (ham cooked on the bone, then put on the grill) with tetilla cheese, a buttery cheese from northern Spain. The bar is really small, and it's essential that you also order cider, croquettes, and pimientos de padrón (peppers that are usually mild, but maybe every tenth pepper is very spicy, so it's russian roulette with fried peppers).
"Only suckers pay for those expensive Manhattan hotels, Myrtle. The ones in the Bronx are so much more reasonable!"
Every single airline does that - I challenge you to find one that doesn't.
Example 1, 2, 3
The only one I've been to is Elephant Nature Park near Chiang Mai, where you can help feed and bathe the elephants in a natural setting. The Wildlife Friends Foundation is the only one I know near Bangkok with a reputation for being ethical, it seems to have mostly good reviews.
The New York Butcher Shoppe in Cahaba Heights is fantastic. Great quality meat, plus they have beer, wine, and pre-made dinners as well. There's a fish market called Sexton's Seafood 2 stores down in the same shopping center. You could get it all done in one trip!
I threw in some links for other reviews and contact info.
Seems Harry Has a History . . .
Through google, i found it it supposedly is here:
the walt disney family museum
Says it in the article. Broadway Hotel.

20% isn't a shitty tip though, it's common for excellent service.. even trip adviser says that exceptionally nice restaurants see 25% as standard (which is still lower than the 34% you suggested).. I mean I bet waitresses really like you, but it's not fair to say $6 is a shitty tip which is over 20%
I have seen this very same wallpaper at the Publick House lodge in Sturbridge, MA, as recently as three weeks ago.
They really are super cute. You get to pick up some of the younger ones and watch them flap about. And then you can go next door and eat turtle soup. Actually, the soup isn't my favorite. But the money goes to the turtle farm so they can keep producing loads and loads of baby turtles -- so that's good.
I may be wrong because I'm going from memory, but if I remember correctly, there was a huge crime perception problem (e.g. the same thing that happened with the Mall of Memphis). Once Tower Records went out of business nationally (which, IIRC, caused the Peabody Place store to close), the idea that the mall was further going downhill spread. It was rumored that kids were constantly running around unsupervised, lots of loitering, etc. I remember they put in a "code of conduct" that specifically targeted black Memphians, and places started leaving when attendance and sales went down considerably.
You can also read some local commentary about the closures here on TripAdvisor, believe it or not.
I'd like to see most of the tourist threads removed and have a weekly sticky where people can contribute interesting events and things going on around the city.
There are hundreds of sites that specialize in travel, hotels, restaurants, etc. Restaurants don't get 4-5 stars on tripadvisor for being garbage and most of them are the same ones that get namedropped here every single time. I understand there are specific questions that you can't easily find by searching, but the majority of questions are lazy and repetitive.
It happened, sorry your life doesn't have fun eventful events and anytime someone else has something neat to share you can't believe it. Believe it or not sometimes neat things happen.
Luling City Market in Luling, TX has always been a fun day trip. It's been a while since I've been. I don't know if they added a second stop light there or not.
And, yes, the Houston rodeo is a great tradition and cause.
I believe its 10 years not ever. And this isn't that legit a source but search showed some answers http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g153339-c49436/Canada:Dwi.Or.Dui.Driving.Convictions.html here is one.
I also believe if they find out you were there with a DUI in those 10 years and didn't say anything its a felony or something. I learned this a couple months back cause wrestlers talked about it.
This is the place.
The guide my photography class had told us about the crocodile. If i remember correctly, this croc was about 70 years old, weighed about 700kgs and had killed a whole lot of people before they captured it and put it in the reptile park

Sorry, I've been watching the shit out of it recently (again)
> tech companies ended up contributing millions of dollars towards public services
I work for a tech company and, like most people in California, around 10% of my salary goes to California state taxes. Isn't that money being used for public services? Where exactly is it going?
When you combine it with federal tax, Californians pay roughly the same as Canadians in Toronto - except Canadians get free health care for their trouble. Oh, and Toronto has decent public transit.
