    Re: Bullfighting

    I have to wonder if anyone in the audience ever roots for the bulls to win. But I'm sure any victory on the part of the bulls is short-lived.

    And what do they do with the bull carcasses?

    Re: Activities in the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar

    Be aware that you should haggle on prices, and yes they might give you a higher price if you're a foreigner. If that's a problem bring along a Thai friend and remain out of sight while they purchase...

    Re: What to do in New York City

    Don't forget riding the Staten Island ferry (for free) for a great view of Lady Liberty. And the South St. Seaport has changed a lot, I'm afraid... the Fulton Fish Market moved, and the Seaport was...

    Re: Favorite theme park (outside of FL)?

    Hershey Park wasn't bad, but I remember the factory tour as being pretty much the highlight of the day. I didn't think the rides were all that great.
  8. Re: If You Could Visit Only One US City Which Will You Choose

    I think it's a toss-up between New Orleans and Chicago for me. But mostly my trips tend to take me in the North East, so I don't know when or if I'll get to either.

    Re: Things to know when traveling in Japan

    Another good thing to know; those little rolled up towels you'll be offered before meals are seriously hot. Handle with care, and gingerly open them up to let them cool a bit before wiping your...

    Re: What are the best things to do in China?

    I hear the mountains are especially beautiful! And I would definitely visit their national art museum, they say it would take like 18 years to display all the treasures they have collected there.

    One thing I learned living in Japan... never ask what's in the food. If you like it, great, if you don't like it, move on. Don't embarrass your host or restaurant cook by making a big show of how...

    Be sure to check the web sites of the museums you want to visit; many of them will have a free or "pay what you want" day every week. And ride the Staten Island Ferry; it's free and you can get some...

    Everyone takes the train in Japan, though they're not all bullet trains (Shinkasen). They are reasonably priced, clean, and efficient. For the "last mile" most people use bicycles. I would not...

    What's not to be missed in Berlin?

    Someday I hope to visit Berlin, mostly to see where my grandfather lived before he came to America. But what else shouldn't be missed? I speak a little German, but not fluently.
