The inside viewof Hanalei Just a quick note to say Christopher Reynolds did a great job representing Hanalei ["Rooted in Kauai," April 20]. As a born and raised Kauaian (who grew up on Weke Road), I must say I was surprised to open the paper at my current home in California and see my hometown taking over a full spread. Reynolds did a great job representing the island and calling out all the best restaurants and things to do - exactly the list I've sent to friends looking for Kauai recommendations.

Having visited the palace Sunday, New York Giants linebacker Danny Clark came away less than overly impressed with Jerry Jones' new $1.1-billion Cowboys Stadium. Clark told Sirius XM satellite radio that the visiting locker room inside the stadium features few creature comforts. "There's not a lot of hot water in there," Clark said. "[Jones] cut some corners in the bathroom there." Clark also was dismissive of the noise factor created by an NFL-record crowd of 105,121. "It wasn't as loud as you would think 105,000 people would be," he said.

As the first U.S. president to visit this Muslim-majority nation in nearly five decades, President Obama will talk trade and security issues with Prime Minister Najib Razak, whom the White House considers a political reformer in a country with a spotty human rights record. But U.S. officials also hope to strengthen “people-to-people” ties, diplomatic speak for trying to spread goodwill and burnish the U.S. image.  Obama, who spent several years living in neighboring Indonesia as a boy, relied on his family history to perform those tasks Saturday after he was welcomed at a state banquet by King Abdul Halim of Kedah, accompanied by dancers dressed in brightly hued brocade.

Your article on Walt Disney Co. being a tough company to deal with is right on target. I recently spent three years visiting, via bicycle, the corporate headquarters of the 500 largest publicly held firms and the 150 largest privately held companies in America. Of all the firms I visited, the worst reception I received was at Disney. PAUL WOLSFELD La Jolla

I enjoyed Payne's article on Jersey. The picture is excellent and is the very place I stayed 25 years ago. Jersey is an intriguing island and well worth visiting. I would enjoy returning there some day. DANA M. PARKER Laguna Beach

I read "Footloose in Shanghai--Some Tips for Visiting Exotic City" (June 23). I visited Shanghai last year and I believe that by no stretch of the imagination could it be called exotic. Interesting, yes, but exotic, no, as for the most part Shanghai is made up of drab, dark-gray concrete buildings. DOROTHY RADCLIFFE Glendale

I am writing to you from Sofia, Bulgaria, where I am visiting my husband on a movie shoot. I was very excited about visiting here after reading Barry Zwick's article ["Sofia, the Belle of the Balkans," June 12], but I couldn't disagree more with his findings. My family and I just came from the Machu Picchu restaurant, where we had an almost inedible meal. Zwick's quote "my fellow shoppers were full of good cheer" is the direct opposite of what we encountered. My advice is forget Sofia and visit Rila Monastery up in the mountains, where people are friendly and prices are reasonable.

As in many a thriller, the helpful stranger in "The German Doctor" turns out to be a monster. In this case, he's no run-of-the-mill sadist but Josef Mengele, Auschwitz's Angel of Death, and he finds prime subjects for experimentation in an Argentine family. The drama by Lucía Puenzo, adapting her novel "Wakolda," is a credible imagining of a brief period in Mengele's South American exile. The what-if conceit is intriguing enough not to be undone by increasingly heavy-handed symbolism.

Lakers guards Nick Young and Jordan Farmar are enjoying the off-season, making appearances at a Kings game at Staples Center on Tuesday and taking in a Dodgers game Wednesday. Young and Farmar grew up in Los Angeles -- Young played for Cleveland High School in Reseda while Farmar went to Taft in Woodland Hills. Both joined the Lakers last summer. Farmar, originally drafted in 2006 with the 26th overall pick by the team, was in his second stint after playing overseas in Turkey.

The passing of the "Late Show" torch has officially begun. On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert paid his first visit to the Ed Sullivan Theater following the news that he will be taking over for David Letterman next year.  To answer your first question: No, Colbert was not in character, as evidenced by the stylish black glasses he wore, rather than the conservative wire-rim frames his blustery character prefers and, of course, by his modest and affable...

TOKYO -- Hiroshi Kyoso says he values Japan's relationship with the United States highly and feels warmly about Washington's new ambassador to Tokyo, Caroline Kennedy. But as the 90-year-old veteran of World War II arrived Wednesday morning to pray at Tokyo's Yasukuni shrine -- a controversial site that commemorates nearly 2.5 million of Japan's war dead including 14 top war criminals -- Kyoso said he saw no connection between the shrine and Japan's ties with America. If a Japanese leader visits Yasukuni, he said, it's only natural.

Baby George, meet bilby George! As part of the duke and duchess of Cambridge's ongoing royal visit to Australia, the wee prince and his parents got to meet George's marsupial namesake during a visit to Sydney's Taronga Zoo on Sunday.  Upon arrival at the enclosure, the excited boy was wriggling and squealing at the crowd and the rabbit-like animal, according to Clarence House.  With a little help from his folks, who helped him stand up...

WASHINGTON - It was an emotional visit to Arlington National Cemetery Monday for Michael Kohn, and not just because the Angels reliever saw the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the eternal flame at John F. Kennedy's grave and the thousands of headstones of deceased veterans dating back to the Civil War. In Section 59 of the cemetery is the grave site of the pitcher's grandfather, Rudy Kohn, a three-star Navy admiral who served in Vietnam and rose to...

Your coverage of South Africa ("South African Safaris," Nov. 24) made me very homesick--thank goodness I'll be visiting in January! But, as an expatriate South African, I can tell you that it is possible to get there for much less than the $2,185 quoted, and during the best time of the year for visiting, i.e. January/February. My fare, using United to London and Air Namibia to Johannesburg, will be a total of $1,262, which includes a charge of $45 for using my credit card and a free stopover in the United Kingdom to visit friends.

Glad to hear that Elizabeth An ("Women of Enduring Strength," April 9) learned "to fall with dignity and to rise with humility." We found no humility at her restaurant Crustacean when we were turned away recently. Though we had a reservation for nine, one member of our party, a visiting executive from the BBC, was denied seating because he was wearing athletic shoes. Of course, we all left, with humility.

Mixed views on Charleston I'm glad Alice Short highlighted the most troubling aspect of visiting Charleston, S.C., in her cover article ["In a New Light," April 13]. What is on the surface one of America's finest historic towns was built and maintained by enslaved African Americans whose history is mostly hidden and unspoken, while the Confederate past is celebrated. The only thing that "saved" our stay in Charleston was Alphonso Brown's wonderful Gullah Tour ( www.gullahtours.com )
