Where do I start? This is my home country. Hmmm, I'll write this later. ;) Information coming soon!

Tipping Practices

Americans tip probably more than any other country. It make it tough for a budget traveler!
For sit-down service, 20% has become the norm although you can get away with 15%. For counter service, you only need to tip (they usually have a jar) if you feel like it. Then maybe a dollar or two. In bars, you tip approximately $1 per drink but if you run a tab, 15-20%.
For spa services, 15-20% (hair dresser, massage, etc.). Porters, $1-$2 per bag.

Blog Entries

More of a personal nature, my un-related diary-like (hmmm or blog-like?) daily thoughts and activities; the things that don't warrant their own article/adventure post.
