Perhaps not as exotic as flying, but I drove to Stuart, FL this week for a bris. About 90 miles each way, the trip was quite pleasant. Thank God for books on tape (CD).
Lovely family, both parents and at least one grandfather in the medical field. Baby's father is a urologist.
The email I received afterwards read, "Thank you Rabbi. I think you did a great job."
His "I think" is a medical opinion (as opposed to "I think but I'm not sure"), which is most appreciated coming from a urologist.
It was a privilege to be there. Thanks for having me!
