    I just got back Friday from a week spent in Hawaii and on the local news the ticker read something like: "Jehovah's Witnesses to gather for a convention here in Hawaii, expected to bring in millions of tourism dollars."

    The best international jw trip I went on was in the early 70's. It was not an escorted trip. We had airfare on a jw plane to and from Europe and we were on our own the time between. We saw a lot and attended only 2 days of assemblies. They don't do those trips that way any more.
