I just saw advertised that Black Eyed Peas are kicking off their Europe tour with a concert here in HLC (Holy Land Central) next month. Yahoo! Me gots to get tickies. I really like their spunk and would like to see their interaction live. Follow, click and listen here. Me likes.
On another note, out enjoying the beautiful beach weather yesterday with cousins when I overhear them ringing up an Eilat friend over the cellphone. In short, they ask if said friend will pop into one of the local hotels to secure a room for visiting American friends.
Now you may ask why the Americans don't simply ring up the hotel and secure the room themselves being grown adults and all. Clever you.
Because the hoteliers assume their wallets are also quite grown up and fat too. If the Americans book, the per night charge is $200. If, on the other hand, an Israeli reserves the room on their behalf, the rate drops in half.
Tsk tsk. You hotel industry/restaurateurs have already been written up in the press about this double standard; You should know better. Don't you know people talk?
