trusts this Katmandu hotel...
like to recommend the Hotel Tibet in Katmandu. I met a doctor
who always stays there because their water is filtered.
She eats all her meals there, too. So, I figure if its
good enough for the doctor its good enough for me...

is good for her skin...
used to have major skin problems due to the dry
air inflight (especially on the 747 aircraft). After some
experimenting I found that drinking lots of fruit juice
(and of course, water) really helps. While water is good
for flushing the system, the juice seems to help retain
the moisture. Though I don't need the extra calories of
fruit juice, I try to drink at least one liter on a long
flight. I also find that placing a wet terry-towel over
my face when sleeping helps retain moisture on the skin.
tip -- when I fly as a passenger, I carry a very small plastic
sprayer (a hairspray sample bottle) filled with clean water
and spritz my face and the air around me whenever

shopping in England...
this for an unusual international shopping tip? In time
for the holiday season, Woolworths in Brighton Beach, England
offers a great selection of well-priced gift boxes of chocolate.
In fact, they stock a selection of Cadburys I never see
in the States. If youre as lucky as I was when youre
there, youll find that Woolworths offers free boxes
of candy with certain in-store purchases. Yummy!

mirror or not...
women might want to know how to determine if the mirror
in your dressing room or hotel bathroom is two-way or not.
This tip was passed on by a policewoman who travels all
over the States and gives seminars for business women. I
havent tested it and Im not sure if its
really true but thought it couldn't hurt to pass it on.
Treat it accordingly.
When we visit toilets,
bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of
you know for sure if the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging
on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror
(i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them)? Just conduct
this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against
the reflective surface of the mirror and if there is a gap
between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then
it is a genuine mirror. However, if your fingernail directly
touches the image of your nail on the mirror, then be aware
for it is a two -way mirror.
