Why do travel writers so often feel the need to compare the locale they are describing to some place they know or already have visited? It sounds to me like Punta del Este is unique in its own way and has a very special South American appeal ("South America's Charm Bracelet," by Jerry V. Haines, Special Travel Issue, March 20). No, it is not Minnesota, Italy or St. Bart's, but if it were, why would you go there? I have been lucky to have lived overseas for lengthy periods of time on three separate occasions and have traveled the world extensively.

When I read "Communing With the Jesuits" (by Richard O'Mara, Special Travel Issue, Oct. 14), I wondered why the missions into which the Jesuits gathered the Indians of Argentina in the 18th century were called reducci-nes. I knew that reducci-n means "reduction" in English. That's an odd word for a mission community. Then I looked in my diccionario and found that the word has another meaning: "subjugation." O'Mara wondered why King Charles III of Spain expelled the Jesuits from his American dominions.

But then, it never occurred to Fitzgerald to ditch the Hollywood snake pit and open a bed & breakfast in a fetching corner of America. Meet a few former California residents with better sense. Full Circle Ranch Cave Creek, Ariz., one hour north of Phoenix Your Host Since 1995: Jim Langan, Altadena/Pasadena native, aka "host, cook, maid, servant and friend."

While reading Susan Spano's article ("The Best Beach in the World?" Los Angeles Times Magazine, Special Travel Issue, March 17), I immediately became nostalgic about my trip to the exotic Seychelles islands in March 2000. My husband and I put the trip together ourselves. I got a great fare to Rome on Alitalia Airlines, and from Rome we flew Air Seychelles to the islands. My husband made the hotel reservations online. We visited the same three islands as Spano, staying at Lazare Picault.
