Thanks, Stan. Never would have thought of that, at least not until it had been too late anyway.
My travels haven't been as extensive as yours. Besides Montreal, my travels have all been within the US. Had my first trip to Hawaii this year. Absolutely loved every minute of it and will return every chance that comes up. Spent 4th of July in Vegas. Love that too. But then, I always have. Funny though, that is the place that makes me wonder the most when it comes to cabbies. None are from the US. They were all from other countries, landed here in the US. in states you wouldn't imagine them going to, before heading out to Vegas. New York, which I also love, is said to be the melting pot. That may be true, if it is, then Vegas is right behind it.
Have enjoyed all your travel tips. Please keep them coming.
