You know, Diane, psychologists say that many people become openly critical of others when they spy traits that they don't like in themselves.


Hypocrisy is one of your long suits, apparently. I note that you have bothered to take the time to openly criticize people who are overweight, who don't share your taste in resorts, and who don't share your taste in clothing.

You brag about your BMW, how often you "travel internationally", your visits to many Ritz Carltons and Four Seasons, the trauma of having your fresh "steak Diane" spoiled by other diners in a fine restaurant, the $200 meals etc etc.

But of course travelling to the most expensive resorts, eating the best food, and driving the most expensive cars allows you to, as you put it "see and learn how others live and learn more about their music, food and lifestyles".

Yeah, right.

You need to take a little look in the mirror before you start throwing stones.

I am kind of shocked at some behaviors here.

With the Anniversary of 9/11 a few days away have you forgotton what life is really all about?

To quote John Lennon:

"Oh boy, when you're dead you don't take nothing with you but your soul - THINK!"

I don't think it needs much explanation.

I stayed at the Nacional and Solymar and they are waaay not 5*. Pretty nice for Cuba and better than I usually have, but waaaay not 5*. I have never stayed at a 5* but I know Solymar does not have turn-down service, phone service, mini bar, in-room massage, spa, gourmet restaurant, flowers, etc that one expects in a 5*. Nacional had a shower curtain that did not fit and cracked plaster... and that was the honeymoon suite. I am pretty sure there are better hotels in Cuba.

* systems do vary world wide. I am a 3* traveller. I like the European 3*'s more than the American ones. You get a pretty sanitized experience in an American 3*; in Europe they have similar amenities, are smaller, but have more charm.

I saw the word "Authentic" in the original post. Authentic is a paladar. No 5*'s there, but it for my style of travel, its more fun.
