    Good recovery. I always call for reservations. I don’t trust emails, text messages, alacarte, et al.

    not knowing whether or not we had reservations for dinner and being in between lunch and dinner I headed to the supermarche for our normal first day items. Is it just me or have the wine and champagne prices skyrocketed there??? Wow. Any suggestions on where prices might be a little better? then we headed to Pearl Beach for a pre-dinner drink. At 5:30 I called Les Bananiers and it still wasn’t clear if I had a reservation but luckily they had room for us, so we just made one then. We weren’t incredibly hungry so we split the raviolis de foie gras with truffles, a Pizza Tartufata (I literally get this every time) and a vanilla creme brûlée. It’s usually our first night stop and while we were very tired it was great as usual. I guess too tired to remember to take pictures before we...

    Hello to all! My wife and I have been turning to the community here for insights for quite some time and thought it silly not to finally join the conversation. We've been coming to the island for the past 5 years and we're lucky enough to stay December-may this year. We'd like to do an extended stay again (Jan-Mar) but are finding the either prices are completely out of whack with historicals or there is little availability in a decent 2BR. So, we were wondering if anyone could recommend a Homeowner or POC on island? We are coming out 11/3-11/7 to do some tire kicking on a few spots and would be happy to meet any folks you'd recommend. Now we are familiar with all the usual channels (agencies, VRBO, ABNB, etc). So was hoping to see if I can turn over a rock and fine a diamond...

    Woke up at 3:30am to a soaking nor’easter in NY and just under 12 hours later we were sitting by the beach in paradise with sunny skis on a beautiful day and with our only concern being “I wonder if Les Bananiers receive our reservation request for tonight”. Spoiler alert - I still don’t know. Other than the white knuckle ride to the airport with a driver that may or may not have had a license and whose jersey plates show he likely didn’t know that in New York you avoid all parkways named after water ways during a storm like this it was a pretty easy travel day. one interesting thing I’ll point out and assume it was somehow an oversight by someone: with all the talk of which test to take, NO ONE asked for our COVID test results. I’m sure this isn’t the norm and at least in part to a...

    I do not believe that I have made any personal claims or offered my opinion regarding the effectiveness of vaccination vs. natural immunity. The strongest statement that I believe I have made is that there is no clear scientific consensus on this issue. I have no "points" that I wish to make regarding the topic on this forum. I have provided references that draw opposing conclusions. For the references that I have provided in response to questions from Dennis and you, I have tried to be faithful to the authors statements and have stayed away from reanalyzing limited data, which can lead to faulty as well as valid conclusions. Straying into areas of opinion and debate is what I suggested woukd best be reserved for other nontravel forums.

    Thank you Izzy for the pointer to the excellent paper. Good reading for a rainy afternoon. I agree that the words in the report, "The effectiveness of two doses remains at least as great as protection afforded by prior natural infection" agrees with yours and Andy's claim, but the papers actual reported data shows that the Pfizer vaccines starts off only slightly more effective (~85%) than natural immunity (~80%), and then tapers off such that within a month or two after vaccination is it less effective than natural immunity. The Astra Zenaca vaccine starts off worse (70%) than natural immunity and drops from there. Particularly noteworthy is that their data on my age group (35-64) show a less than 50% vaccine effectiveness for Astra Zenaca 3 months after vaccination. It seems the...
