    Are there some good comedy clubs in downtown San Francisco?

    Cobbs and Punchline are probably the best known with a regular comedy line up on any given night. The Purple Onion also has comedy, but it's not all that thy do, so be sure to look up the listings. For large headliner stand up comics, check out FGate.com for the latest acts playing at the larger capacity theatres. almost 9 years ago

    Does anyone have any recommendations for good non-touristy bistro type restaurants in Paris in the Latin Quarter or near the Pantheon

    Its been ages since I have been there, but I always like to look at Patricia Wells cookbooks as she lists the places and cooks of bistros all over Pars that inspired the recipes. Travelandleisure.com and virtualtourist.com also have great listings. almost 9 years ago

    Where's a fun and memorable place to have lunch/dinner on Christmas Day in New York?

    New York City is magical any time of year but Christmas especially so. Depends on your style of place and neighborhood. One of my fave spots is Casa Mono (on Irving Street) or Blue Water Grill, both off Union Square. Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill always delivers if you fancy a southwestern/mexican touch-beautiful spot near the shopping on the bottom end of 5th Ave. For a classic NYC experience, Rockefeller Plaza can't be beat and I recently enjoyed Jean Gorges on Columbus Circle in a Trump building-lost of glass and light (and lots of $$!) For something you will definitely not find in Sydney is the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station...buzzing with locals and commuters alike, old school waiters and gorgeous oysters. Grand Central has a few good higher end restaurants, but the Oyster Bar IS New York. almost 9 years ago

    How best to take buses from Buenos Aires to Cordoba?

    I went to Cordoba by bus but was coming from Uruguay so my route went through Santa Fe, but there would most certainly be direct buses between BA and Cordoba. http://www.omnilineas.com/argentina/bus/retiro/cordoba/ has some details. It Takes 10-11 hours, so I highly recommend getting a bus/seat that is comfy and may even recline; it's worth the price in my view. I found the best way to get the full picture of who goes where and when was to go to the bus terminal a day or two before. Te terminal in BA is Retiro-huge bus terminal by the train station. I was surprised to learn of how many routes and companies offered services to places that I could not find info for online. Have fun! about 9 years ago

    what is the best hostel in lima, peru?

    The Miraflores neighborhood is lovely and has lots of options. I noted the Hostal Torreblanca and more in the heart of the action was Hotel Mariel (http://www.mariel-hotel.com/aboutus.php), which may be on the pricier side. Calle San Martin also had a few blocks of secure and nice looking hostals. Here's a link: http://www.travellerspoint.com/budget-accommodation-es-ci-689.html, which also lists the Gallery House mentioned above. Barranco is a lovely lovely bohemian neighborhood on the cliff top overlooking the Pacific. Great bars and restaurants. about 9 years ago

    How do you tell someone you want to go traveling for an extended period?

    Hmmm...very tricky question and without knowing you or the full dynamics of all involved, but if you have been together for ages, then there must be a solid basis of trust and understanding of who you each are as people and as a couple. He should understand that this is part of not just your professional aspirations but personal too, and one can only support that in the ones we love,no? My boyfriend went away for 4 months; while it seemed interminable, I knew he'd be back before we knew it, he was going to have amazing adventures and life experiences and that he would come back an enriched and happier person for having done it. Six weeks is no time at all really. Skype, Facebook, emails etc will keep you connected and able to share your adventures with him as you go, perhaps even lay the groundwork for when you two go to Europe together one day. Given that he can't go for six weeks, perhaps he can take a week or two to join you for part of the trip and not feel so left out. about 9 years ago

    I'm going to South America and wanted to know if it was possible to learn to surf down there. If so where is good?

    I know it's late for your trip but for the purposes of letting others with a similar question, look at WAVES for Development in northern Peru. They do trips that combine surfing school and a volunteering stints. A great organization and goo people. about 9 years ago
