Travel Alert

I would love to be able to discuss hotels and restaurants today, but there is a travel alert that you must be aware of. We normally review hotel and restaurants worldwide, but today, we must discuss the events happening in the Middle East. Our embassies in Libya and Egypt have come under attack, and the ambassador in Libya has been murdered, along with three staff members. They were gunned down in the street like dogs. So if you are planning travel to any Muslim countries. You should probably cancel it immediately for your own safety. If they can kill the ambassador, what chance do you think you would have. The Obama administration will not take any action to assist you. Should you run into trouble. You're basically on your own. So traveler beware.
