re: Best place to stay in Florence, Italy? - jordan21210
I've recommended this place before and I'll continue to do so in any Florence thread because it was that good. [link=(http://www.delloliofirenze.com/en/)]B&B Dell'olio[/link] It's a short walk from the train station and steps away from the duomo. Owner is incredibly friendly and the rates are ...

re: Keeping La-trained doctors in the state for residency proves to be a challenge on MatchDay - jordan21210
[quote]This is overblown. Many of those Louisiana docs will return after their residency. It has less to do with funding of healthcare than prestige of program at various schools. Is LSU not filling their residency slots? I doubt it. [/quote] Agreed. Most people want to be back where their famil...

re: Italy in 10 days.. itinerary help - jordan21210
I booked flights for early May in January last year. September is beginning of slow season so I'd imagine prices will come down by May. What prices are you seeing right now? We paid $1200 for MSY --> Milan/Rome --> MSY. ...

re: Italy in 10 days.. itinerary help - jordan21210
Yeah, hardest part about Venice is figuring out how to get to the main roads if you're slightly off the beaten path. The vaporetti make it easy to get around if you get a 72 hour pass. Regarding Rome, as mentioned, Piazza Navona is a good central spot. I'd say there or near Campo di Fiori/Jewish...

[quote]Florence, not sure but it looks like i want to be close to that small inner area, looking around Duomo. Something with cool rooftop views[/quote] If you're not 100% set on an AirBnB, look into B&B Dell'olio. It's a one minute walk to the duomo and was around $160/night for a very large roo...

re: Italy in 10 days.. itinerary help - jordan21210
Need to look back at my costs, but pretty sure my fiancé and I did a 13 day Italy trip for ~$6000, all in. Less if I factor in my airfare was paid with credit card points. $150/night can get very nice accommodations in Italy. ETA: It was closer to $7k, wasn't a "luxurious" trip, but we did what ...

[quote]And really, if you take navigation and texting features away from a system you're left with a big fancy XM radio (and that's about it). Even the apps like Yelp and such require you to continue to pay uConnect for their service if you want them to work past your trial period. [/quote] Agree...

[quote]You lack knowledge of intermittent fasting and ketogenic diets then. [/quote] You're right. I don't know anything about keto bc I don't care about it. And either way you spin it, it doesn't make the fat "good" for you. It's still 54g of artery clogging fast food burger fat. I'm the sam...

If your main thing is food and wine, check out Elizabeth Minchilli's blog. She's an ex-pat living in Rome and has tons of great restaurant recommendations and also offers food tours. Wish I had known about her when I was in Italy last May....

Why are some of y'all so adamant that he's crazy for driving a McLaren in BR? There are actually a ton of exotics in BR. Forget the guys name, but there is a guy in BR that owns a McLaren F1 and a few very rare Ferrari's, among other cars. This isn't some farfetched crazy thing for this guy to ha...
