[quote]I was about to say, unless they want to sell you something.
Yes. And be prepared for shop owners to hound you to come in to their business, especially restaurants. You gotta give them a firm, "no" and keep walking or they'll just keep at it. This was more prevalent around the ...

Topkapi Palace is also pretty interesting. There are some very good views of the city. Taksim Square and the neighborhood around it is nice.
My friends and I took the ferry across the Bosphorus to the Asian side. I would definitely recommend exploring that area too.
If you want to go of...

Its shaping to be a mild a Thanksgiving .. 60s!
Museum of science and industry is great. Kinda off the beaten path but worth it. Signature Lounge on top the Hancock tower is a must. Kids are welcome and its free to go up.. but you gotta buy at least one drink...

In Chicago many of them ride the subway especially in the winter so they don't freeze to death.
The worst was one time there was a guy on there just crying for food. Really sad. Many people gave him food though and he was so thankful. ...

Many people are confusing High speed rail with commuter rail. HSR would not be the best way to travel from BR to NOLA. It is designed best for regional travel. That is where it's pricing could be competitive with the airlines. In my opinion, traveling from BR to NOLA would most likely cost too mu...
