I demand a recount! Or a re-survey! Or some form of redress for the aspersions Travel + Leisure magazine has cast not only on the City of Angels but on all of us Angelenos. The magazine released a survey last week of travelers who, in all their wisdom, concluded that Los Angeles surpasses New York as the rudest city in America. Excuse me? My first reaction was fear that I would never again be able to use the rude New Yorker jokes in my already limited humor repertoire ?

Value added? Not so much Spain has found a convenient way to ease its troublesome budget deficit. During a May transatlantic cruise, some 750 passengers on Holland America's Prinsendam, including my wife and me, were notified that Spain had imposed a 7% value-added tax on shipboard purchases while in Spanish waters. The Prinsendam docked at the Spanish ports of Cádiz, A Coruña and Bilbao. Of course, the VAT on-board would be in addition to the same tax we were charged for on-shore buys.

SUSAN SPANO'S take on the inevitable negatives involved in travel ["Disenchantment Tags Along, Even in Enchanting Lands," Her World, March 19] was totally refreshing and a joy to read, particularly coming from the pen/keyboard of such a seasoned trekker. Travelers all know bad stuff happens, yet the cover-up is always creative. For example, a friend describes a pocket-picking incident in Paris that turned out to be an "adventure." Yeah, sure. Sorry I missed the experience. Spano's list of advance planning tips is invaluable; more, please.
