    Actually, we've sort of decided that I'm going to do LASIK and then we'll go to Hakone in mid-November. Watch this space.

    P.S. Kids' school fees are... yeah.

    Tomorrow morning I head to Tel Aviv for business. It'll be my first real business trip, I'm discounting a previous one to Provo to help pack boxes in a warehouse.

    It's kinda nervewracking. First trip to a country where the native language can't be puzzled out at all. First one where I have to not appear to be incompetent. First one in a long time without my wife.

    I hope it's not too humid.

    Going to Kyoto instead, since LASIK means no hot springs for 3 months.

    Have fun, Tom! Take pics!

    I'm flying out to Cancún, MX with my wife & the Boy on Saturday for the week. Should be a fun time. #seaturtles

    I'm in need of some winter travel ideas. Budget is limited until end of year though, when I pay off my credit card debts. Thinking something "big" late in winter?

    I do have southwest miles for something "cheap" sooner, though.

    The Boy has been pretty good on the trip so far. Currently sitting in the first plane of our journey out of Chicago.

    Next stop: Dallas!

    Recently my evening cocktails have been leaning towards the classics like Sazerac, Vieux Carre, La Louisiane etc so my vote would be New Orleans.

    Likewise!

    Cancún is pretty much a hotel-driven environment. We're staying at an Air BnB house where we can pull our rental car into the gated walls each night and not worry about damage or theft, but our surrounding neighborhood is relatively middle class-to-poor.

    I haven't seen any sketchy characters but then we have a toddler so we're in for the night around 5-6 PM at the latest. #shrug

    Lots of heavily armed local & Federal police driving around. We went to Playa del Delphines today through the hotel zone and the only people I saw being hassled by the cops were Mexicans driving beat-up shitboxes. I felt pretty safe in the rental back there, as I imagine we're just more hotel tourists to them.

    That will change tomorrow! We're heading to Chichen Itza along the toll road, and a rental car can make us a target for being hassled. #fingerscrossed
