Luxor, Egypt: Balloon Rides Start Up Again


According to CNN, hot air balloon rides are going up again at Egypt's Luxor site. The popular tourist feature was closed down six weeks ago after a horrendous accident that resulted in the loss of 19 lives. The rides feature aerial views of the Great Pyramids and other historic sites.

While some tourist balloon companies are still shut down while investigations continue, others may now resume their flights. The government reports that more effective inspections, safety measures and crew training will greatly reduce the dangers in future flights. Additionally, passengers now must sign liability documents accepting the risk of balloon flights.

Fly Clean With Wipes & Never Use Aircraft Seat Pocket PDF Print E-mail


Medical experts advise you to steer clear of that little holder bag on the back of the seat in front of you. Too often, bare feet, dirty diapers, outdated food and soiled underwear are stashed in them.

It’s also a good idea to take disposable medicated tissues aboard, and before you sit down, wipe off the headrest, seatbelt buckle and tray table. Also, when you gotta go into airport and aircraft toilets, wipe off the inside handle of the doors and other surfaces. With the spread of coronavirus, it’s always wise to fly as hygienically as possible, or not fly until the problem settles down.

 
Philly PA: Eat Where Hamilton, Franklin & Adams Dined PDF Print E-mail


More than six million people annually visit Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park in the downtown area. When eating there in two-centuries old City Tavern, they can "be in the room where it happened” as sung in the musical, "Hamilton."

Just a short walk from Independence Hall, where America’s Founding Fathers created a new nation, is the popular restaurant. Opened in 1773, it was where members of the First Continental Congress gathered to dine and drink. Few things have changed, except dinner in 1776 was $1. Today it’s $50. www.10best.com/interests/food-travel/dine-like-its-1776-historic-city-tavern-philadelphia
