Stuck like an Egyptian

A dear friend of mine desperately wants to improve his life and follow his dreams. I live in a far freer country so I'm unsure of exactly how best to show him support sometimes. I want to tell him not to give up hope and to work hard towards his goals, that it's the only way they'll happen. Sometimes I wonder if maybe I'm just being an overly optimistic American, though. I want to help him in any way I can, but we take for granted the possibilities we have here. Things are far different in his country than in mine and I know that. So I feel a bit useless as support. Insights, please... [more inside]

CP lost my passport app, and stole my vacation and my work plans.

The f*cking idiots at CanadaPost have 'lost' my passport application, along with an brand-new official birth certificate (not a copy, and this just cost me $60) and a signed photocopy of my drivers license, and all the personal details in my application. Basically, a handy identity-theft kit has probably been stolen, perhaps with the help of a CanadaPost employee. I bought guaranteed, registered delivery to the passport office in Gatineau. CanadaPost's response is to offer to pay me back my shipping cost. [more inside]

Bus tours and vacation packages

Bus Tours in U.S.A. I am looking for vacation packages (for destinations like grand canyon, yellowstone park) from sanfrancisco/bayarea similar to this one http://www.gotobus.com/vacation/ http://www.lassentours.com/ Can people share their experience if they had gone through such tours. Are they worth for the money paid for ? Do we get to see these places well ? Can we say that the experience will be enjoyable Are there any other tour operators apart from above which are good ? The main reason, i am prefering such tours, is the convenience... The price seems to be quite reasonable too... Thanks for your time.
