2023.06.04 01:16 geoffpilkington Restaurants & the algorithm

There is a restaurant here in LA that I often take orders from and have for a long time. I will hang out outside and maybe 80% of the time I’ll get the order. Other drivers will do this as well. However recently the algorithm STOPPED giving me orders for this restaurant. But it still gives orders to other drivers hanging outside regularly. Has anyone else had this experience? No matter how close I am it won’t give me orders for that specific restaurant anymore. And no the restaurant hasn’t complained (they know Me). I am also still able to get others anywhere else.
I spoke to Uber support and they had me reset my phone and log in and out and delete the app and re log in. They also said they made internal changes on their end. It so far has done nothing. Uber support also said there’s no flags or anything on my account. Account is clean. But for whatever reason, The algorithm will not give me orders from this specific restaurant.
Anyone know the algorithm at all and what could be happening here? Or has anyone had this experience? I’m totally baffled and it’s very frustrating.

Why does my drinking Bud Light offend you?
May 30, 2023 4:39 pm • Last Updated: May 30, 2023 4:41 pm
By Mike DiMauro
Day Assistant Sports Editor
[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
News item: Anthony Bass, a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays, shared a video Monday via Instagram endorsing an anti-LGBTQ boycott of brands such as Target and Bud Light.

"Here's the reason biblically why I believe Christians have gotta be boycotting Target, Bud Light, and any other corporation that's pushing the things they're pushing,” Bass said. “I think a lot of people make this into a political issue, or they say, 'Oh, what's the big deal?’

“This is evil, this is demonic, we won't stand for it, we're not going to go to the stores anymore and we're not going to give you our money.”

It would be impolite to wish that Mr. Bass, who throws a ball for a living, blows out his elbow. Perhaps then he could simply blow it out his tailpipe.

Because I’ve grown tired of sanctimonious and hypocritical moral outrage over what Target and Bud Light are “pushing,” while it’s permissible that Bass and his ilk get to “push” their beliefs on the rest of us.

Example: In the last two months or so, I’ve been questioned a half dozen times in public as to why I’m drinking Bud Light. Seems people like Bass have objected to Anheuser Busch’s marketing partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. Their boycott of Bud Light has led to a decrease in sales both locally and nationally. (Local bar and restaurant owners say Bud Light sales are down almost 30 percent.)

It is their right, of course, to boycott the product. I’m just curious as to why what I’m drinking is their business. I drink Bud Light because I like it. And I’m still drinking Bud Light because I will not marginalize people based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. I’m respectful enough to support someone else’s desire to evolve into another gender. And I’m not stupid enough to believe that my decision to drink Bud Light changes who I am or what I stand for in any possible way.

But I wonder why it’s so important for people — and the questions to me haven’t all come from men — to announce their disdain for a bottle of beer, tacitly implying their sexuality is “normal.” Remember this one and write it down: If you are truly comfortable with who you are, you needn’t announce anything to anyone.

And yet to further illustrate how screwed up this country really is, there’s this: Anheuser-Busch hasn’t merely been accused of alienating its traditional customer base with the partnership, but some LGBTQ+ campaigners have also criticized the company for not defending its ties with Mulvaney.

Amid all the finger-pointing and fear-fanning, the truth hides in the corner, too scared to emerge. The truth is that we are supposed to think critically, weigh evidence from both sides and then make up our own minds. Instead, we’ve become a country hell bent on legislating whatever cause we think is right and just, while burying the other side from all consideration.

It’s political tribalism. All or nothing. One side or the other. If you’re not in agreement with every morsel of the transgender movement, you are a snarling, hating, infidel. If you’re not in total agreement with Anthony Bass and his beliefs, you’re going to wither in hell.

But what if — and hold on to your ascots here — two conflicting positions can still be true? Example: What if I support Bud Light’s decision to use a transgender influencer, but also believe that transgender high school athletes belong in their own division?

I disagree with the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference’s policy complying with a state law that requires all high school students be treated according to their gender identity. We should consider a sports-centric law that acknowledges sports' unique challenges and accommodates the physical component for success that exists virtually nowhere else in society.

Sex discrimination in education, health care, housing and financial credit have no place in this country. But we must — must — realize and accept that sports require a physical component to succeed that calls for different guidelines.

Put it this way: Applying to a school or for health care, housing or financial credit requires no physical component to succeed. Sports require speed, strength and agility and do not fit under the same umbrella. And yet sports are routinely shoved into the same arguments about unfair treatment. Injustices get piled on for rhetorical usefulness, even though they're not applicable.

The male born composition has inherent physical advantages, rare exceptions noted. But in the aggregate, there are physiologic differences between biological males and females. I don’t believe writing that makes me transphobic. We should respect a person’s pronoun of choice. But that doesn't mean we have to blindly agree with claims that are not supported by science.

Yet that appears to be the new end game in this country. Blind agreement. Their side or yours. And here I sit, sipping my Bud Light, trying to figure out why so many of us act like the last three letters of Anthony Bass’ last name.

This article pretty much sums up exactly how I feel about the situation. Bud Light basically sent someone a can with her image celebrating a milestone. The fact it turned the beer into enemy number one doesn’t surprise me considering the vitriol that has become commonplace in our country. I have had plenty of private messages regarding a video I posted supporting a beer, and more importantly a human being. Most have been vehemently against my support of both and relish the chance to send me a screen shot of Bud Lights stock on a daily basis with a “Go woke, Go broke” ending. I believe much of the vitriol comes from news and talk radio which is why Spotify now fills my vehicle with music instead of talk. I ask everyone to limit their news intake to 30 minutes per day regardless of your party affiliation to center your life. Sometimes my radio will land on a “news station”, and I can feel my blood pressure rise as the most divisive topic of the day is being discussed with a majority of the facts not being considered. I am not recommending folks to ignore what’s happening in our world, but would point out that our country has survived many decades without the need for “up to the second” news reports. Most of the things we worry about will never happen and it seems our country is living in a constant state of fear which is certainly to blame for the vitriol. There will never be a point where everyone in the country will collectively say we are all happy with everything, but I still have a deep believe that with constructive conversations and true empathy we can get us close. When I get my boat in the water I would love to have an ice cold Bud Light while listening to my relaxing boat playlist, and of course talking with my favorite sports writer. That’s an invitation Mike. Great article.

“Bud Light sales are down between 26% and 35% nationwide additionally Budweiser and other AB brands (Michelob Ultra, Busch Light and Natural Light to name a few) have also taken a hit of around 11%.”

All the more reason to explain what set this off. Completely unhinged.

“My take, buy Coors stock now”
And that statement reinforces my point since Coors has been a decades long supporter of LGBT rights probably the biggest supporter (it all began with a workegay alliance boycott ironically… or not)
“Coors Light has been a sponsor of The Center and Denver PrideFest for decades,” says Rex Fuller, CEO of The Center on Colfax. “The work we have been able to do at The Center over the last four decades would not be possible without this support and we are grateful for it.”
Beyond supporting Denver PrideFest, Molson Coors has a distinguished history of supporting LGBTQ communities across the country, with significant support for organizations such as Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Matthew Shepard Foundation, National Amateur Gay Athletics Association of America, National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, LGBT Victory Institute, Out & Equal, and One Colorado.
In addition to these partners, Molson Coors works with local LGBTQ organizations in key communities through its Tap Into Change program. Annually, the summer program donates more than $100,000 to these organizations with a consistent growth in impact each year. Events take place in each city to help raise additional funds, awareness, and support for the missions of these local organizations. Over the past 10 years, Tap Into Change has raised nearly $600,000 for local LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS nonprofits.

This is even though like 2006, 2010 and 2014 they had to go through boycotts for this. And they did shrink back in response, but also came right back and didn’t move backwards for long.

And what will I do?
Continue drinking Corona because I drink what I drink.
It’s damn near impossible to do a successful boycott long term. The web of corporate connections means when you think you’re hurting one, it’s actually benefitting another one connected to it.
The beverage brand that owns Budweiser, Corona, and Stella Artois, is suing US beer-maker Constellation Brands for using the Corona brand name in a hard seltzer, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

Beverage giant Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) acquired Corona’s parent company, Grupo Modelo, in 2013, but US antitrust regulators required it to sell the company’s US-based business to Constellation. AB InBev retained rights to the products in other markets, and the deal gave Constellation the rights to produce Corona and other Modelo brands in the US.

Bud Light sales are down between 26% and 35% nationwide additionally Budweiser and other AB brands (Michelob Ultra, Busch Light and Natural Light to name a few) have also taken a hit of around 11%. Bud Light has been the best selling beer in the USA for over 20 years and the normal volume of sales is 27 million barrels a year or 1134 million gallons. A 30% drop equals a loss of 340 million gallons a year. My take, buy Coors stock now

Do people realize that Bud Light sent a pack of specially made cans with the person’s face on it and did a minute long or so bit released on like TicTok? It wasn’t some big nationwide PR campaign yet it rubbed someone the wrong way (or so they would like us to think) and it snowballed into this.

I don’t ever want to hear about people calling “the libs” snowflakes or use their center liberal stances as a weakness. These champions of “conservatives” are gullible whiny babies.

I watched in real time a bunch of idiots blow something up out of nothing and then saw them flocking to the internet people with their influencer pages and podcasts and publications where immediately they were being hawked “anti-woke” beer and all these other wares, often made by the same places they are boycotting for double the price.
There is a whole market opening up to people that will only get their businesses off the ground (temporarily for a quick cash grab) by using these outrage tactics and capitalizing (literally) on impaired brains that as Mr. DiMauro correctly observed “Blind agreement. Their side or yours”
Bless your little void of empathy and common sense hearts. Don’t spend all your money in one place now, spread the wealth to these people selling you overpriced junk.

For me… Bud Light as a “beer” sucks. I would rather support local breweries that provide far better beers. As far as this column… as far as AB selecting this influencer in their campaign I have no opinion on it or that person. Up to each to decide for themselves.

Regarding this column actually Mike what you are writing is basically the same as the boycott and the changes in attitudes (political divide) of the country. Often used by politicians on BOTH sides of the aisle screaming to be open, defending one´s right to choose, freedom of speech etc.. and this is the most important part..”unless it does not validate their opinion or view”. This is exactly what you are writing. So if someone elects to boycott something and we know the WOKE police and Leftists enjoy not only condemning opposing viewpoints to the point of boycotting, attacking employers for the “views” of their employees etc… and demanding they be removed from the position their are in. So if someone boycotts something let them… I would ask you… why does it offend you that others are using their constitutional right by boycotting (freedom of speech). I always respect other´s opinions and even when we do not agree. Sadly we live in a world where people are afraid to speak up due to the potential ramifications. None of us will always agree and I know the powers to be are trying to “force” us to all be uniform in our opinions which is sad. And btw Bud Light is terrible anyway… How about you focus on sports.

2023.06.03 08:11 Global_Relative_3177 Chapitre 15: Sistre le chat

Bonne lecture.
Le soleil est presque levé, Shedet a toujours les yeux rivés sur son papyrus holographique. Sa main droite tremble par manque de sommeil, son dos lui inflige des brûlures infernale mais ce qui le blesse davantage est le désespoir. Encore une fois il récupère sa plume et taille la tige contre le sol de sa corniche où un profond sillon est désormais gravé. Impossible de savoir combien de fois il a exécuté ce mouvement et par mégarde il avait brisé le calame récupéré chez Solal. La transpiration ne rend pas la tâche plus facile et les braillements du crocodile en bas le font sursauter. Les premiers rayons de soleil lui brûlent la rétine si bien qu’il s’en protège avec la main manquant de faire tomber le papyrus du haut du palmier. « Déjà le matin? Toute une nuit de labeur et je n’ai pas réussi à écrire ne serait-ce qu’un mot. Inscrire un caractère sur un papyrus végétal est si facile puisque le support est matériel. Là c’est complètement impossible, la feuille est un hologramme et la pointe de ma plume doit précisément le toucher. Ni trop haut, ni trop bas, le moindre mouvement inutile ou imprécis fausse l’écriture ». Shedet s’allonge en contemplant le ciel, son rêve de devenir scribe s’éloigne comme Horus et les escadrons d’ibis volant au-dessus de lui. « Les scribes le font si facilement, bon sang! Je savais que je devais prendre un autre calame; il se relève aussitôt, aligne ses genoux révélant les marques des deux rouleaux du papyrus, mais oui c’est ça! La plume est sans doute fautive, je ne fais que la tailler depuis le début, normalement c’est celle d’une autruche ou un paon qu’il me faut. Il y a aussi ma posture elle n’est pas droite à cause de mes fesses engourdis, le sol ondulé de la corniche n’est pas propice à cet exercice. Je devrais essayer de voler des coussins à Boubastis ». Shedet se penche du haut de son palmier afin de déceler un meilleur endroit où écrire cependant la vue du crocodile lui coupe l’envie. « Je le ferai plus tard et ailleurs. De toute manière je dois aller au chantier. Misère ». En repensant au sabotage un sourire se dessine sur son visage, une émotion si forte qu’il ne peut s’empêcher de rire. Savoir son meilleur ennemi enfin plus bas que terre lui redonne la joie de vivre. Pour la première fois il souhaite aller au chantier mais pas pour travailler, seulement dans l’espoir de connaître les avis de ses collègues impuissants. « J’ai hâte de voir cela. Normalement il sera remplacé et si ce nouveau contremaître est aussi borné et impitoyable alors je recommencerai encore et encore sans le moindre scrupule ». Au village près de la pyramide, le calme ambiant est assez déroutant. Le seul signe est un drapeau blanc dressé sur le chantier, le maître scribe a écrit la liste des hommes ne travaillant pas et Shedet en fait partie. Pas de construction aujourd’hui, le temps de nettoyer les dégâts restants, ensuite le nouveau maître scribe doit enquêter sur les causes du chaos. « Et bien, mon sabotage a été plus efficace que prévu, je devrais en profiter pour me reposer et chercher un calame. Solal devrait en avoir un autre… ». En passant par l’avenue principale, une large route destinée avant tout aux charrettes et donc bondé lors des constructions, Shedet aperçoit un attroupement autour du panneau à information surmonté par une magnifique statue en marbre noir de Bastet. Un avis de recherche y a été cloué mais pas celle d’un Sittiu en fuite, non celle-ci était différente car la personne recherchée est un chat. Un persan blanc d’une beauté presque divine d’après les dires des Sittiu à proximités. La déesse Bastet en serait même jalouse. Se frayant un chemin entre les Sittiu, le déchu parvient à lire le message gravé sur le bois « Le chat du nomarque: Sistre, est portée disparue, récompense à celui qui la retrouve ou la ramène et châtiment inhumain à ceux l’ayant dérobé ». En temps normal une telle demande étonnerait Shedet, il s’en moquerai même, cependant se sachant dans le nome vénérant principalement la déesse Bastet tout ceci ne lui paraît pas insensé de la part du nomarque. « Bonne chance à lui, son chat doit être mort, dévorée par l’un des nombreux prédateurs circulant dans le nome ou alors l’un des Sittiu en a fait son repas par pur vengeance, dommage… ». Shedet se fige, un plan murit dans son esprit néanmoins un souvenir le stoppe dans son élaboration. La mésaventure à l’hôtel lui donne aussitôt des maux de ventres, son coeur ralentit et la peur reprend. L’audace avec laquelle il avait chamboulé ses plans à Memphis a complètement anéanti sa vie. « Je n’ai plus très envie de foncer tête baissée, que va-t-il m’arriver si j’exécute ce plan? Je n’ai pas envie que le nomarque deviennent un énième ennemi, mais pourquoi le deviendrait-il? En tout cas j’ai vraiment besoin de cette opportunité, c’est sûrement Thot ou Amon qui me teste. Ils me donnent une chance de racheter mes erreurs ». Assis sur un muret près d’une statue de Bastet, à l’abri des regards depuis maintenant quelques minutes, Shedet établit un plan. Retrouver ce chat lui sera favorable aux yeux du nomarque encore faut-il pouvoir le retrouver. A Boubastis les chats pullulent la nuit pour éviter la chaleur et surtout le tintamarre des chantiers. Le manque d’information ne lui rend pas la tâche aisée mais il en faut plus pour le décourager. « Le problème vient des Sittiu, si l’un d’eux l’a déjà capturé comment je fait? Pourquoi je me casse la tête sur ce problème, je le lui vole et je récolte les lauriers ». Sur le sable rouge, Shedet dessine approximativement une carte de Bast d’après ses observations depuis son oasis, ensuite il effectue des déductions quand à la possible destination du chat. Soudain deux lavandières Sittiu du nomarque passent derrière lui après être revenue du palais. Au départ cette présence ne l’intéressait guère jusqu’au moment où la conversation s’entame sur le chat du nomarque.
— Tu as vu Léana? La disparition du chat est officielle dans le nome.
— Oui je sais, Miysis n’a pas arrêté de fouiner partout dans le palais cette nuit. Dieu merci je n’ai jamais aimé ce satané chat, toujours là pour m’embêter durant mon nettoyage. — Et bien ce chat pourrait devenir ton gros lot, enfin si tu le retrouves. — Une récompense fabuleuse je sais, dit-elle ennuyée en tournant dans une rue adjacente. — C’est la première fois qu’elle fait cela, peut-être que l’un des nôtres l’a dérobé même si cela m’étonnerait. Shedet suit ses deux femmes, l’oreille tendue il ne perd pas une miette de la conversation. — A cette heure quelqu’un a dû le trouver Léana, dommage j’aurais bien voulu une récompense… — Chut! Tu es folle! chuchote-t-elle en lui bloquant la bouche, si quelqu’un t’entend tu auras de gros ennuies. Personne ne le recherchera, nous sommes trop occupé à travailler pour ce foutu nomarque, de toute manière bon débarras. — Tu as raison, j’espère que Miysis souffre il ne mérite que cela. La conversation dérive en ragot inutile pour le déchu. Empruntant une ruelle vers le Sud du nome, Shedet se cogne contre une femme corpulente faisant la vaisselle assise sur un petit tabouret. Perdant son équilibre il trébuche et brise un des verre de cette mère au foyer. — Oups pardonnez-moi… La femme, au visage crispé, ne se gêne pas pour récupérer le rouleau à pâtisserie fraichement nettoyé et le rouer de coups pour le faire fuir. Par chance il esquive tandis qu’elle agite l’ustensile dans tous les sens en braillant des insultes propres à son peuple. A l’abri au Sud de Bast, bien à l’écart de Boubastis, Shedet reprend son souffle. « Un peu plus et toute sa famille rappliquait ainsi que le quartier. Bon au moins je sais que j’ai mes chances. Normalement ce chat ne traîne pas en ville sinon tout le monde l’aurai vu ou il aurait déjà été rattrapé. Je devrais essayer les zones désertiques au Sud de la pyramide sinon vers le chantier. Je sais! J’ai entendu dire que la pyramide à degré était l’une des cachette des chats ». Lieu isolé au Sud-Ouest de Bast. la pyramide à degré est un tombeau traditionnel portant en son sein la dépouille du premier nomarque. Une momie vieille de plusieurs siècles. La structure, ressemblant à un empilement de six gâteaux au miel rectangulaire, est cernée par une petite muraille blanche haute de cinq mètres. L’enceinte intérieur comporte un jardin, lieu de repos pour la descendance du défunt qui ne vient jamais. Aujourd’hui ce sont des ivrognes Sittiu qui se cachent dans ce bout de paradis. Shedet entreprend l’ascension de la pyramide, des chats sont effectivement présent au sommet. Durant l’ascension il entend au Nord la mélodie du chantier Sud de la grande pyramide, les barrissements de l’éléphant au travail ainsi que des cris et fracas résonnant jusqu’à ses oreilles. « Avec l’aide des dieux, Sistre sera au sommet ». Normalement personne n’a le droit de rester dans les environs, ce vestige est une sorte de mémorial, comme beaucoup d’autre dans le royaume, cependant une partie des félins de Bast y ont bien élus domicile. Shedet, concentré à chercher le moindre chat, vadrouille parmi les étages plats et lisses, tout en essayant de ne pas attirer l’attention. En silence, tel un esprit, il explore la modeste pyramide puis grimpe le dernier étage. En équilibre sur un échafaud abandonné lors de la restauration, Shedet observe de son oeil, devenu perçant comme un aigle, la trace du chat ou d’une piste. Les félins s’éclipsent lors de son arrivé mais aucune trace de la cible. Elevé à une hauteur de soixante mètres, le déchu contemple le nome avec une nouvelle perspective. Sur sa gauche Boubastis, un peu plus animé par la présence des ouvriers du chantier de la grande porte, sur sa droite les champs de blé du nome entouré par les bras du Nil provenant d’autres régions. Dans l’un des champs d’orge proche de Boubastis, Shedet aperçoit Geburah rôdant et titubant dans la boue sûrement sous l’effet de l’alcool. Tombé en disgrâce depuis hier il semble ne pas vouloir remonter la pente. « Bien fait pour lui! Que les dieux soit loués! J’espère que ce n’est que le début. Misère, je me fais sûrement des idées mais j’ai l’impression qu’il recherche Sistre ». Soudain un chat miaule dans son dos, un petit cri harmonieux extirpant le déchu de ses pensées, la surprise est telle qu’il chute sous l’étage inférieur. « L’ai-je enfin trouvé? pense-t-il allongé sur le dos. Mince je crois m’être brisé une autre côte ». Le plus rapidement possible Shedet remonte les étages. Un chat hors du commun est toujours présent calmement assis. — Déesse Bastet? il se prosterne face au chat. La déesse est un chat aussi gros qu’un jaguar, sa peau est faite de Titane orné de métaux précieux et d’or juste assez pour l’embellir et ne pas l’alourdir. Le soleil l’alimente en énergie et innerve les fentes de son métal d’un beau jaune orangé. La gracieuse créature le fixe tel une statue puis exécute quelques pas autour de lui. — Déesse Bastet accepteriez-vous de m’aidez? Je… je recherche Sistre pour… aider le nomarque. Le félin métallique ne bouge plus et observe le déchu de son regard perçant. « Elle ne semble pas vouloir m’aider, tant pis ». La déesse s’échappe puis dévale la pyramide en un éclair, Shedet l’observe s’échappant au coeur de Boubastis tel un esprit. En chemin elle croise Geburah et très brièvement il interrompt sa démarche d’ivrogne pour s’écarter autant que possible de la déesse. Même son esprit fortement alcoolisé sait qu’il est suicidaire de s’attaquer à un dieu, ses congénères et notamment Horus le pourchasserait sans relâche à travers le royaume. Des récits avaient racontés qu’un Sittiu fut carbonisé par Horus lui-même alors qu’il essayait de détruire un sphinx à tête de faucon. Une autre histoire déclare que Sobek réduisit en charpie une femme, cette fois Égyptienne, pour avoir sciemment pollué le Nil. Toutefois cela n’empêche pas l’ancien contremaître de cracher sur les traces de la divine créature. Le beau crépuscule s’apprête à recouvrir l’Égypte dans une heure, Shedet l’observe en réfléchissant à une quelconque piste. Il compte sur ces dernières heures pour retrouver le félin sans quoi il devra retourner demain sur le chantier. Les Sittiu sont persuadés, comme d’habitude, qu’il est responsable du sabotage et lorsque ces gens sont dans un tel état de suspicion difficile de leur survivre. « Le chat n’a pas pu sortir de Bast et encore moins être mort sinon Bastet l’aurai amené au nomarque pour l’embaumement. Il doit forcément avoir une raison pour qu’elle ait fuit. Si je retourne à Boubastis et espionne les Sittiu je devrai peut-être découvrir une autre information ». Dans la ville les Sittiu envahissent lentement les rues. Certains dorment, se reposent ou jouent entre eux dans les différents bars. L’ennui gagne vite la population car rien n’est fait pour le loisir, les enfants sont les moins à plaindre et une dizaine d’entre eux sont encore assis à écouter les anecdotes du doyen de Boubastis. Un vieil homme fébrile et aveugle toujours assis qui pourtant s’exprime parfaitement. Etrangement quelques un de ces cheveux sont gris. Shedet passant à proximité, écoute l’histoire en attendant de reprendre ses forces, derrière un muret il entend: — Ne vous méprenez pas les enfants, le désert avance je vous l’assure sur le Tout-Puissant. Lorsque j’avais votre âge, le sable était retiré très loin dans le pôle Nord et Sud, déblayé sans arrêt par mes ancêtres qui l’ont acheminé dans les nomes afin de s’en servir pour les fondations des constructions que vous voyez. Mais aujourd’hui ou plutôt depuis deux décennies, le sable se rapproche, il élève nos sols et stérilise les champs… — Mais grand-père tu parles du sable comme d’un monstre, un animal vivant. — C’est bien le cas mes enfants! Un jour quelqu’un nous libérera du joug des Égyptiens et il utilisera le sable pour les engloutir, à ces mots le vieil homme serre de toutes ses forces sa canne et sa voix tremble. Tous ces Égyptiens mourront, leurs récoltes dépériront, le soleil qu’ils vénèrent tant disparaitra, camouflé par un nuage épais. Priez mes enfants, priez pour que ce jour arrive car… Le doyen s’arrêta de parler car un coup puissant résonna derrière lui, c’était Shedet dont la colère intense le poussa à partir avant que son poing ne rencontra le visage du vieil homme. « La défaite du royaume? Par Amon, ces chiens sont aussi stupide qu’ils sont laid et fou; il frappe du pied un débris de bois faisant fuir un chat. Par Thot, je ne dois pas m’égarer dans ma quête. Je regrette d’avoir entendu ces âneries mais en tout cas mon ouïe est bien aiguisée. Je dois continuer à chercher ». Ses recherches se poursuivent tandis que le ciel est illuminé par les rayons roses crépusculaires. Shedet est épuisé, stresse à chacune de ses rencontres avec un Sittiu, les femmes sont les pires car elles utilisent des ustensiles de cuisines acérées et contondants pour se défendre. Les hommes eux sont trop fatigués ou ivre pour se soucier de sa présence néanmoins il arrive que des chats se baladent parmi eux à la recherche de nourriture délaissé sur les tables. Shedet en a suivit plusieurs sans succès car les félins se faufilent dans des recoins étroits avant de disparaitre pour de bon. « Ô grande Bastet aide-moi à retrouver l’un de tes enfants, j’ai vraiment besoin d’un miracle ». Les écoutes n’ont mené à rien: des commérages, des histoires sans importances, des ragots sur le nomarque ou encore des insultes sur le royaume et Pharaon. Les recherches s’achèvent sans succès alors que la nuit est tombée, rester à Boubastis en tant qu’Égyptien est suicidaire. De retour sur le chemin de son oasis, Shedet aperçoit une chose étrange rejoindre la ville. « Que fait cette jeune fille? On dirait qu’elle revient du pôle Nord, personne ne fait cela à moins de cacher de la contrebande. La suivre me semble nécessaire je serai vite fixé, de toute manière je n’ai plus aucune piste ». En marchant dans les étroites ruelles de Boubastis, au quartier Shirazi, le déchu se cache quelques fois des groupes d’hommes flânant ivre en direction des bordels. Shedet perçoit une dispute camouflée entre les chants de fête. Il avance dans une rue adjacente, contourne les récents déchets jetés par une famille, tourne à droite puis à gauche dans les ruelles tel un rat tout en entendant les disputes se transformer en sermon. A travers la brèche d’une fenêtre donnant sur l’intérieur d’une belle maison de Sittiu, une femme, sans doute une mère, vient de gifler une jeune fille de seize ans. Cette dernière est bien celle revenant du pôle, à terre et se frottant sa joue droite toute rouge, elle retient ses larmes. — Qu’aurais-tu fait si un garde t’avais surprise! Petite sotte! Tu n’en fait qu’à ta tête, un jour tu le regretteras. — Mais maman il va mourir de faim si je ne lui apportes rien. — Mourir de faim? Il n’a qu’à manger un de ces chats, ce type en a tellement qu’il en est devenu fou. — C’est faux! La… la fuite l’a rendu fou je te le jure, ce n’est pas quelqu’un de méchant. — Cet homme est trop vieux et trop délinquant pour toi. Il ne mérite pas toutes ces attentions, la seule chose qu’il va te donner ce sont des ennuis d’ailleurs cela ne m’étonnerai même pas que le chat de ce foutu nomarque soit là-bas. La mère range la corbeille tombée près de sa fille avant de la remettre dans une étagère simplement couverte par un tissu verdâtre. — Et bien… — Ne me dis pas que son persan est avec lui! s’écrie la mère. — Chut! Du calme maman! Je l’ai vu mais il va bien, c’est une femelle et je pense qu’elle a rejoint des mâles. — On s’en fiche! Tu aurais dû le rapporter sale peste! Imagine ce que le nomarque nous offrirai pour ce chat. — Mais nous passerions pour des traîtres aux yeux des nôtres. Ils nous lyncheront comme le scribe parjure. Cette phrase cassa les rêves de sa pauvre mère qui se remit à tisser son lin sous la lumière d’une chandelle. « Par Thot! Ma clé est là! Pitié prononce juste un indice sur le lieu de résidence de cet homme, je vais le décharger de ce chat ». Quelques secondes plus tard la mère demande à sa fille se peignant face à un miroir sûrement volé: — Qui d’autre est au courant? — Personne, enfin je crois, je n’ai pas l’impression qu’il ait de la visite. — A part ces chats, dit-elle sarcastiquement. — Oui à part ces chats, de toute manière maman personne ne serait assez fou pour franchir la frontière du Nord. Certaines fois j’entend des bêtes qui… Le sursaut de sa mère l’empêcha de continuer car cela sonnerait son décès si elle connaissait les véritables dangers au-delà de la frontière. — Mais ne t’en fais pas, reprend-elle, c’est une grotte sous un énorme rocher impossible à rater. De toute manière tu penses bien qu’il aurait déjà été tué si la zone était dangereuse. Shedet partit immédiatement en trébuchant sur un fruit pourri, sa joie lui donne un surplus de force pour rejoindre son oasis en un éclair. La limite avec la frontière est très proche ce qui lui facilitera ses recherches. Malgré sa fatigue Shedet sprint pour rejoindre le lieu de rencontre avec la gamine. Son esprit est en ébullition après ces écoutes. « Par tous les dieux! Je vais peut-être le retrouver! Finit la vie de déchu! ». Il dévore une orange et une banane dérobée un peu plus tôt à une étale de fruit dans le but de pouvoir courir aussi longtemps que possible si jamais le chat est en sa possession, la motivation lui confère plus de force. Sans attendre plus longtemps Shedet accoure à la limite de Bast depuis le lieu où la jeune fille revenait, en suivant ces traces en sens inverse il pénètre dans le pôle Nord. Son accueil est fait par une silhouette, une bête volante au loin, difforme et poussant un cri terrifiant résonnant à travers les canyons. Les deux lunes apparaissent enfin dans le ciel, les risques de chute et les dangers n’en seront que plus nombreux. Néanmoins, comme il l’avait prévu, la jeune fille ne s’aventure pas si loin, après dix minutes de marche en suivant ses traces dans le sable un immense amas de rocher au Nord-Est laisse échapper de la fumée. Shedet aperçoit alors une cavité dans la pierre comme si elle avait été creusé par un monstre, de la lumière commence à émerger de l’obscurité, tout à coup les miaulements de chats attirent le déchu dans la bonne direction.

2023.06.03 04:10 InevitableTowel53 Full Update: Locator 42 Experience / Passport Success

Posting a full update here! After getting an in person appointment today for DOT of 6/3 (tomorrow), I have secured my passport!! More accurate timeline below and more about my experience at the Los Angeles Passport Agency:
4/21: Mailed my passport renewal (DS 82) with routine service and 1-2 day shipping for delivery
4/24: Arrived to Irving TX processing center
4/26: DOS received application and it’s in process
5/22: Realize I need to expedite so I call the NPIC number and they take my card information. They tell me to call back starting 5/26 for an in person appointment. I got my first passport as a teen so had no idea what these appointments were and that they were so hard to get
5/26: I call NPIC and of course they say they don’t have any appointments. My application is still in process at the New Orleans passport agency (locator 42). This is the Friday before Memorial Day so I figure not much else to do until after the holiday.
During this weekend I start to comb through Reddit threads and this is where I learn I can contact my congressmen to help with the passport process (I never knew they could help with this sort of stuff)
5/30: I email and call my congressmen’s office (Jimmy Lopez in LA) and fill out their forms. They get back to me same day and say they will put in the congressional inquiry and if that won’t speed up the process they will try and get me an appointment. I also call NPIC to check on appointments and none avail still. I also call locator 42 directly and tell them NPIC marked my app as urgent, that I got a congressional inquiry and my DOT is 6/3 but the customer service agent is extremely unhelpful
5/31: I call my congressman’s office again and let them know how unhelpful locator 42 is and they end up getting me an appointment to go in person to my local passport agency in LA on 6/2. Even though I mailed in my old passport with my application and don’t have access to my birth certificate, the guy in the office assures me to go the appointment and just bring anything I have that could work as proof of citizenship. Folks on Reddit threads also calmed my nerves since ppl said they just went with other things other than their birth certificate and were able to still be seen.
6/1: I try one last ditch effort to call locator 42 and I actually get a really nice lady who says she’ll do what she can and she marked my app as urgent but that it probably won’t make much of a difference since the next day is Friday/ the weekend is coming up and my travel is so soon.
6/2: Day of in person appointment in LA! Had a 7:30am appt. I brought my filled out DS-82 app (renewal), copy of my previous passport, passport photo, State ID (mine is from NY state), flight and hotel confirmation, and for safety I brought my apartment lease and SSN card lol but I didn’t need those in the end. I arrived at 7:20 and the line was already long. They didn’t let ppl in til closer to 8am. The line moved so slow it wasn’t until 10:30am that I was seen. At the last minute I was diverted away from the line going inside the building and through security and to one of their windows they use for will call outside. I give in my documents and am told to come back between 1:30 and 3. I come back around 12:45 and the line for pick up is even longer. I get to the front around 2:30p and they tell me my passport isn’t ready yet so I have to go inside. Inside there’s a room full of people waiting for their passports to print. I wait on a smaller line and when I get to the front they take my receipt and tell me to wait in the waiting area for then to call my name. They call my name around 4pm, hand me my passport and I’m off!
Hopefully this is helpful for someone out there as I was losing all hope. This thread definitely helped keep me sane and I wish everyone the best of luck if they are trying to get their passports, keep pushing through!

2023.06.03 02:28 AcornSkittles Big Burrito Restaurant?

The year was 2004. I got invited to eat at this restaurant in, I think, East LA. They were famous for this 3 foot (I think) burrito. Me and 10 friends shared it. It was epic. It was amazing. If it still exists I need to go back and introduce it to my husband.
Does anyone know the place I’m talking about?
Thanks in advance! 😋

Dry skin eczema help. I'm needing product advice to help with my eczema and preventative anti-aging.
I have always struggled with dry dead skin and sensitivity. I am happy with the cerave lotion and olive oil after washing my face. I desperately need to find a good sunscreen, a nonphysical exfoliating cleanser and a different face wash. Preferably products in store(canada) maybe shoppers drugmart. I am using the pixi retinol for the first time and I do like it. TIA

2023.06.02 19:27 IDEKBRUH57 She’s gone forever

This girl who left me WARNING STRONG LANGUAGE Here is a description of the Woman, short Latina beautiful brown eyes the most perfect smile of all time. Her name was Leslie.
My name is Ezekiel I’m tall dark skinned and have honey black eyes and dread locks with a pretty nice smile ig.
It all started when this girl asked me out. After I got done playing football I was shirtless sweaty and bruised up a little bit. Leslie asked me out in a weird way like it turned me on. Leslie touched the middle of my chest and then moved her warm soft hand downwards to my abbs and rubbed them gently and I thought like this girl a freak and pretty but back to the point.
This is what Leslie said to me she said hola papi quieres salir conmigo para poder dar la noche de tu vida but I didn’t know what that meant so I asked her to say that in English. She told me what she said and I was like the time of my life what does that mean. She said just say yes and you’ll figure out papi. So I said yes to Leslie. Me and Leslie had a date scheduled on may 15th at a expensive restaurant at 7:40 pm.
The restaurant was great I’m talking about it was perfect and Leslie walked in and her beautiful green dress was the most perfect thing I’ve ever seen her body looked perfect her smile looked perfect and her makeup and eyes were just lighting up my night. Leslie looked so beautiful that night. So during the date Leslie kept rubbing my foot under the table with her foot and she looked at me and winked at me and I winked back. So Leslie had chicken Alfredo and I had a cesar salad. We talked about eachother a day and we both kept smiling at each other but she said this in Spanish quiero montar tu polla tan bien papi so I was confused again so I asked her to say that again in English but she said you look handsome tonight. Leslie didn’t know I knew Spanish but after we had sex and it was great it went on for a hour but anyways besides that we started dating and slowly and slowly she was getting more distant but like she still showed love.
One day a guy called Leslie and said some hey mama I wanna eat your pussy tn but it said pa so I was confused but then it hit me I was getting cheated on. Later that night I confronted Leslie and we got into a fight but I gave her a second chance.
So I had cheated on Leslie and if your reading this now I’m probably dead right now because I’ll tell you the story of what happened so Leslie’s friend came over and she had touched me and we kissed and had sex she walked in on it.
Leslie pulled out a gun and shot her friend but it was one bullet in the gun so I’m in a hiding spot under my stairs right now hoping she doesn’t find me because she is screaming my name I called the cops but they won’t be here for another 25 minutes so I’m writing this story to tell my last thoughts.
Mom your the best woman in the entire world nothing comes before you and mother has a chance of coming behind you that’s how special you are to me you raised me alone when my father passed you broke your back and knees to make sure you have what I need to school and thank you for that mom.
And for you Leslie I’m so very sorry that I had cheated on you, you mean a lot to me and I love you so very much but your crazy and your the world to me but I did something unforgivable even tho I gave you forgiveness but it is what it is she is breaking in the stairs I love you all and have a great life this is the end of me. Goodbye and don’t forget Ezekiel.

2023.06.02 18:39 jordanp2019 Thailand May 2023 Review

I’m an avid traveler and I wanted to share my experience and answer any questions that other people may have. We left from LA to Thailand through Singapore with a meager 20 hours of travel time. Itinerary:
2 nights Bangkok: We underestimated how much the jet lag would affect us, we landed at 12pm on Saturday and slept from 2 pm until 7 am on Sunday. We checked out The Grand Palace, Chinatown & Centralworld on Sunday. It was brutally hot & humid and overall felt like a major disappointment.
2 Nights Siem Reap: I normally always do 1 country per trip but I couldn’t see myself doing Cambodia anytime soon and Angkor wat was high on my bucket list. Seeing the sunrise at Angkor was beautiful, we did it as a tour with Angkor Guide Sam. Sam was great can’t recommend him enough. We saw Ta Prohm and Angkor Thom and I actually liked Angkor Thom best! I’ve done a lot of digging and it seems like there are lots of good reports for Siem reap, I however was very disappointed. It’s a very poor city and has little infrastructure, the food we tried was underwhelming compared to Thailand and overall it felt extremely touristy. It may have been just where we explored but after reflecting on Siem reap I don’t personally think it’s worth the time and effort to tack it onto a Thailand journey.
4 nights Koh Samui - we were limited to the eastern islands due to monsoons and Chaweng is obviously very touristy. We stayed about 20 minute walk from the best bars and nightclubs which was great! We explored Ang Thong marine park and did a ATV tour to the highest point of Koh Samui. We also experienced the nightlife which truly was exceptional. We stayed in a touristy area so the food was not good and overpriced but besides that we thoroughly enjoyed Koh Samui for what it was and got to experience some great adventures.
4 nights Chiang Mai - a foodie paradise it seems, cheapest place we visited. We did Pooh’s eco trek which was an authentic unique experience staying with real Karen tribespeople. It was a great tour and once in a lifetime experience we also did a zip lining tour which was fun and included the only jungle roller coaster in the world. I would recommend five nights in Chiang mai. Beautiful city, so much charm at every corner and so many adventures spread all around the city.
3 nights Golden Triangle - we stayed at the Jungle Bubbles at Anantara that was priceless! Sleeping in a jungle with Elephants is one of those memories you carry with you to your deathbed, the cooking class was phenomenal and we also did a boat ride through and around the golden triangle in the Mekong River. If you can swing it, I think it’s worth every penny and was somehow unique, relaxing and adventurous all at the same time.
2 nights Bangkok - We stayed on Soi 11 and that made all the difference in the world. Smack dab in the middle of the action. Walkable to some of the best nightlife in the city and close to all the sights
Bangkok- Doubletree Sukhumvit, in Phrom Phong, is close to the BTS which was a plus but overall it was a poor location far from everything. Decent property but I would not recommend staying at the doubletree due to the location. 3/10
Siem Reap - Templation Hotel, very cool hotel with a very cool outdoor bathroom and beautiful pool. Drinks were very very weak and food was very overpriced and underwhelming. The location is close to the temples but not the city, this made it difficult to get around. If you’re looking to explore the city this is a bad hotel if you’re looking to relax at the resort it may work! 5/10
Koh Samui, Sala Samui Chaweng Beach resort only 20 minute walk to the best nightlife in Chaweng and a beautiful hotel with great service, the breakfast was great and there is a grocery store & pharmacy right across the street to satisfy any cravings. There’s also a fire show on Saturday’s which is very cool. 8/10
Chiang Mai - Le Meridien, major construction at this hotel, pools were closed rooftop bar was closed, restaurant was closed we weren’t told this ahead of time which was disappointing. But it is right across the street from the night bazaar and walkable to most sights. 6.5/10
Golden Triangle- Anantara Golden Triangle, beautiful resort and world class service, from the massage and welcome gift at the beginning to the personalized touches spread throughout the rooms. The staff remembers your name, your orders and are prompt to respond to every request you may have. One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at 9.8/10
Bangkok - Aloft Sukhumvit 11 was a hip trendy relatively basic hotel, but what it lacked in charm it made up for in location. The perfect location to get around the city and there is so much to do directly around the hotel this is the place to stay if you like to be in the action. Location 10/10 Hotel 7.5/10
Getting around: Bangkok - Grab (App), BTS, Metro. Super easy to get around with google maps
Siem reap - Grab does not work at the airport, it’s only taxi’s/tuktuk’s and they are extremely expensive.
Koh Samui - Grab does not work here, lots of taxi’s looking to overcharge tourists but we mostly walked.
Chiang Mai - Taxi’s only from airport, we mostly used tuktuk’s to get around.
Bangkok Rung Rueang Pork Noodle (Left Shop) - great tom yum soup and pork balls 7.5/10
Pastel Bar - food was ok, but the drinks were delicious, the views were immaculate and the vibe was awesome. Requires Reservations! 9/10
Koh Samui Sound Spot Samui - great DJ, strong drinks, the shows they put on were well worth it. 8.5/10
Prego Chaweng - Overpriced, poor service, poor food 2/10
Green Bird - touristy meh food, decent service 4/10
Chiang mai Ploen Ruedee Night Market - super cool market, live performances which were engaging. Good food 7.5/10
Khao Soi Lung Prakit Kad Kom - khan soi was incredible, it was packed 2:30 pm with locals. Highly recommend one of the best meals of the trip. 9/10
Chang Phueak Pork Leg Rice - The pork was moist and flavorful, the cabbage was robust. It was delicious, definitely go to Lung Prakit and this food stand while in Chiang Mai. 9.5/10
Khalo Soi Lamduan - recommended by a local, the khal soi was solid but not the best. 6.5/10
My travel style is unique experiences, food and sightseeing. Thailand had its highlights but for my style, I feel South America offers a lot more value.

2023.06.02 14:33 tristesse-au-reveil J'ai l'impression qu'il pense que je suis là pour le servir

En postant ce qui va suivre je ne m'attends pas à recevoir de conseils, peut-être des témoignages similaires au mien avec un peu de chance, mais j'ai surtout besoin de me plaindre, en fait.
Voilà, mon mec (40) avec qui je (30) suis depuis un an semble me traiter de plus en plus comme une assistante. Au départ ça allait, même s'il avait déjà tendance à "m'imposer" de le suivre - il est musicien et il est très occupé, alors selon lui la solution la plus simple pour que nous passions du temps ensemble, c'est que je le suive durant ses concerts. Le problème, c'est que : - Quand il joue, je n'ai pas l'impression de passer du temps avec lui. Moi je suis assise dans le public, et lui sur scène. - N'étant pas très sociable et le monde de la musique étant une communauté avec des règles très spécifiques dont j'ignore tout, je me sens souvent mal à l'aise et complètement inutile, ce qui n'est pas très agréable - Ma grand-mère est en fin de vie et chaque fois que j'accompagne mon mec au travail un dimanche, je me dis "c'est autant de temps de perdu avec elle", et ça me troue le cœur - Comme je suis prof, j'ai beaucoup de travail le weekend (correction de copies, préparation des cours etc) et j'ai l'impression qu'il ne se rend pas compte que oui, je ne fais "que" 21h de travail présentiel dans la semaine, mais en vérité, durant certains weekends, j'aurais juste besoin de rester chez moi pour boucler mon travail pour la semaine à venir - J'aimerais juste, égoïstement, passer parfois du temps toute seule ou en compagnie de mes amis sans avoir à me justifier.
Quand je lui expose les arguments ci-dessus, c'est toujours la même réponse : je ne pense qu'à moi, je pourrais être un peu plus solidaire avec lui qui bosse tellement, qui s'épuise, qui a besoin de soutien moral.
Le truc c'est que quand il est en vacances, il part en voyage sans moi (il me propose de l'accompagner, mais c'est trop cher pour mon petit budget...) et là, ça ne le dérange plus de ne pas passer de temps avec moi. En fait, c'est que quand il fait quelque chose de peu agréable qu'il a besoin que je l'accompagne, on dirait. Du coup, je ne pense pas que ce soit moi, la personne égoïste. Évidemment, il n'est pas question pour lui de modifier ses horaires de travail pour être plus souvent avec moi. En gros, soit je le suis partout, soit on ne se voit pas.
Autre chose qui me saoule de plus en plus : la répartition des tâches. Honnêtement, il vit chez moi 6 jours par semaine, et je ne l'ai jamais vu faire une machine, donner des croquettes au chat ou faire des courses utiles (il est incapable de regarder ce qu'il manque dans l'appart avant d'aller au supermarché, alors quand il revient, je vois par exemple qu'il a acheté des bières et du saumon fumé, par contre nous n'avons plus de papier toilettes et il n'a pas pensé qu'il serait utile d'en acheter... Donc je me retrouve à aller faire les courses moi-même.) Il est capable de manger 6 oeufs ou un fromage entier dans le même repas, et il ne paye jamais rien. Il gagne deux fois plus que moi et tous les soirs il vide mon frigo. Toute seule (enfin moi et le chat), je dépense environ 70€ par semaine. Depuis qu'il est entré dans ma vie, je suis plus proche des 150€, mais il ne veut pas me croire quand je le lui signale. Selon lui, je ne me rends pas compte de tout ce qu'il achète pour nous deux (encore une fois, il achète des bières un soir par semaine, du pain tous les mercredi, et quelques légumes genre une ou deux fois par mois, quand ça lui prend de cuisiner. Tout le reste, c'est moi qui le paye. Jamais il n'a pensé à nous ravitailler en lessive, en shampoing, en produit vaisselle... c'est comme s'il pensait que tout ça apparaissait chez moi par magie, comme un enfant.)
En fait, la seule chose qu'il accepte de payer avec plaisir, c'est les sorties. Si on va boire un verre, il paye 4 fois sur 5.
C'est à ce sujet que j'ai vrillé tout à l'heure. En général, le vendredi midi, nous mangeons ensemble, en ville. Vers 11h30 je l'appelle donc pour lui demander où il avait envie de manger, et il ne répond pas. Je le rappelle à maintes et maintes reprises, mais pas de réponse avant 13h. Il me rappelle en mode "euh écoute je t'avais dit qu'il fallait que je trouve un moment pour [faire tel truc lié à son travail] alors je l'ai fait ce midi, voilà, désolé mais on ne se verra pas". Je me dis que c'est pas cool de me prévenir aussi tard, mais bon, il a une bonne excuse. Un peu plus tard il m'envoie une photo. La photo d'un énorme hamburger. Il était parti au restaurant sans moi, et en plus il trouvait drôle de m'envoyer la photo.
J'ai pris ça comme un manque de respect assez conséquent, et honnêtement, je pense à le quitter. Ça peut paraître extrême pour quelque chose qui semble aussi anodin mais quand on se crève le cul pour quelqu'un, qu'on a plus un rond, plus un moment de liberté, et que cette personne semble trouver que payer un menu à 10€ dans une friterie pour nous c'est déjà trop, eh bien je vous jure, c'est comme recevoir une bonne grosse claque.
Je suis triste, je me sens conne, je me déteste de ne pas réussir à lui faire prendre conscience que tout ça est injuste. Il a bon fond, il pourrait comprendre, mais mon ressentiment à son égard m'empêche d'aborder le sujet avec lui maintenant. Je crois que c'est trop tard, que mon envie de le fuir ne me quittera plus.

2023.06.02 11:59 CostaRicaAdvice Best Places to Practice Spanish

Hello all!
I’m planning on going on a 10 day trip with my family (all adults and teenagers) to Costa Rica in mid July. We would like to stay in an area that’s a bit out of the way without a ton of tourists everywhere, but not so out of the way that there’s not much to do and it feels totally deserted.
Additionally, although I’m not totally fluent, I speak Spanish pretty well and am really excited about being able to practice my Spanish with natives in a Spanish-speaking country. For that reason, I was looking to stay somewhere that, save some tourists, is predominately Spanish speaking where people wouldn’t instantly switch into English upon seeing someone who’s not a local as I heard is common in big tourist areas like La Fortuna and Manuel Antonio.
I realize that Spanish is much more common in areas of the country where fewer tourists go, which tend to to be the less interesting places (at least in the eyes of foreigners), but was wondering if anyone could recommend places to stay that are mostly Spanish-speaking but still have some interesting things to do and aren’t so underdeveloped and out of the way that it’s a major inconvenience for travelers.
I was thinking of flying into Liberia and staying around Playas del Coco/Playa Hermosa (Guanacaste) which seem (correct me if I’m wrong) to have nice beaches and restaurants and a decently developed city and don’t seem as completely overrun by English speaking tourists as somewhere like Manuel Antonio. I was then thinking of making some day trips to some more remote locations and national parks and one multi-day trip to La Fortuna from this “base.” I am totally open to new plans if anyone could recommend some better locations, though.
Any recommendations for other areas to stay that are better suited to what I’m looking for or general advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
