The nation's capital is buzzing with tried-and-true American interests: presidential politics and baseball. Here's what's doing in the district.
Nowhere is the experience of taking a bath so celebrated, ritualized and revered as in the cities and regional areas of Japan.
Four hurricanes in so many weeks pummeled large parts of the Caribbean and Florida. While Orlando was smacked about and thoroughly drenched, the town was left relatively unscathed compared to others. In the spirit of its recovery, we take a look at a couple of current offers.

From Nadine Fox: "Dear Frommer's, Thank you for your recommendation for Mexican Home Cooking School! I just finished a week there with a group of friends (6 of us) and it was just wonderful. They normally have a maximum of 4 students but for a group of friends they allow 6 . The owners Estela and Jon made that a private week for us and could not have been better hosts. Before arrival all our questions were answered; we had clear and easy instructions on how to get to Puebla and be met for our complimentary pickup to their home and school. We each had rooms with bath, fireplace, high ceilings ¿ all different ¿ all beautiful. Food and drink was non stop.
From Robert Drake: "In July we had a fantastic holiday on the South West coast of Jamaica in an area called Treasure Beach. Sunshine, laid-back atmosphere, boat trips, tasty food, no big resorts, cheap accommodation. But what made it really special was the friendly people. Soon after we left, Treasure Beach was hard hit by Hurricane Ivan. I checked the Treasure Beach web site www.treasurebeach.net every day for news on whether the people I¿d met were safe and about the extent of the damage. The web site shows that many other people who had visited Treasure Beach felt a special connection with it too. The web site has an inspiring running commentary on how the local community is working together to look after each other and rebuild, with assistance from the extended family of previous visitors."
From Robert L. King: "If the Fairmont Southampton is, as Frommer's describes it, the 'most luxurious property on the island,' we strongly suggest you reconsider not only your hotel destination but also whether you should go somewhere other than Bermuda altogether. We went to Bermuda for our honeymoon and were sorely disappointed with the Fairmont. For us, 'luxurious' connotes some measure of pampering; you'll get none at the Fairmont."
From Erika Knudsen: "My husband is a permanent resident of the US, and has been since the 1970's (native country, Denmark). We are traveling to Italy in December, and I have heard several horror stories of travelers not being able to re-enter the US. Last time (before the current war, but after 9/11), my husband was detained and needed to prove that he worked in the US. THis time, he is planning on bringing a paystub, his business card, and staff ID. What else should we anticipate? What types of problems have permanent residents faced trying to get back home?"
Reader Brian Brooks weighs the pros and cons of choosing how to see the country in four weeks.
