There is no such thing as a beautiful sun visor. China, Indochina, you are still part of the "problem".

This is a perfect place to use this:

MikeDT, what possible reason could the US government have to post you in Xilinhot, Xilin Gol League, Inner Mongolia, China?
Hard to image you're gathering much intel there.

Well I'm mainly interested in the dumb threads and the drama, It's what makes SF so interesting and worth staying.

I see this one is still in MC, and not DT.

I purchased in the main gift shop what they call a Golf Sun Visor as a very special gift for my wife - full price but one of the least expensive items in the boutique and not that much. This year my wife appears to have lost this simply designed but very tasteful accessory and I decided to try to replace it.

The Ritz Paris still offers this item and it's on their website - in navy and white. Price is 33.44 euros (approx. $40) - actually 40 euros with tax - and comes automatically gift wrapped but the shipping cost is listed as 40 euros, or approx. $53. I wrote to them asking if this is an error - that the cost - UPS and "6-7 days" to Cleveland, Ohio couldn't possibly be that high (I could see $7 maybe - totalling under $50) and that the item is fairly small and certainly quite light weight. I also mentioned I don't need it that quickly - three weeks would be acceptible. They wrote back they realize it's expensive but they ship UPS and it's very "secure." They also mentioned the price is based on bulk and not weight. wrote back again asking if there might be some mistake; I didn't know if they really looked carefully at the numbers.

No response yet. Isn't $53 outragious for the shipping of a cotton sun visor from Paris to Cleveland via UPS? I know it's the Ritz Paris but the item itself is reasonably priced for an attractive sourvenir from such an illustrious hotel. More than most sun visors, perhaps, but certainly not crazy out of line. Incidentally, I'm not finding any visors just like this on eBay or elsewhere online, so far. A Ritz Carlton in the U.S. might sell a similar item but it's not from or marked "Ritz Paris." confused.gif Hotel Ritz Paris Sun Visor.jpg 4k .jpg file

You can buy this simple stuff anywhere.

Wow, I totally misread the OP. I thought they had stayed there and thus had good memories. Instead the OP stayed else ware and simply bought the hat to pretend that they had stayed there. This gets stranger and stranger.

The more I look at this thread I honestly don't know if its just a really nice gesture for the wife, or just a weird display for others.
