    We did a Fiat 500 for about an hour, but been Jimny (auto, with plenty of downshifting) people ever since.

    Re: Where Am I? - Take Nine

    Had lunch at Francois last year. Loved the setting and thought the service was good. Food was just ok, especially given the prices. Didn't return this past May and probably won't next year.

    This is fun, but unfortunately, you seem to have gone everywhere we didn't on our last trip.

    Re: Connection Help - SXM to SBH

    To be safe, we always book the later flights with SBC, but in our experience, they will often send a plane if enough people are there to fill it. We frequently arrive on SBH around an hour early.

    Re: Fun With Food at La Repaire

    Love Le Repaire. Always seems to be "Moules et Frites" day when we show up, so I never get to the actual menu.

    Re: Lil Rock Beach Club

    We ate there last month and have to agree - "La Gloriette and added just a bit of refinement". I believe we had the same seafood plate for two and it was perfect.

    Noticed a lot of the Jimny's this year didn't appear to have ever had a spare on back, including ours. Wondered why. Cost savings? Rash of thefts in previous years?
