Thread: I know what they're thinking

    I know what they're thinking

    Whenever we decide to stay at a hotel instead of a villa, last time the Le Sereno, I am still asked at check in if I would like the international news that's been printed out from an email. I always say yes as it reminds me of the days prior to reading the news on a laptop, phone or ipad. I love it that it's also a day old, and quite frankly I'm not really in need to be checking in on the world when lying by the pool, but I still do it. Invariably I get looks from other guests, I know what their thinking, this guy is a neanderthal.

    Traveling all over the world I always looked for the Herald Tribune print. Kind of like a security blanket-

    I always read the paper on the train to & from Philadelphia from the suburbs to work, learning how to properly fold it back so as not to hit or annoy the seatmate. Took practice !

    We walk down the hill in Pte. Milou to the Christopher Hotel- they print the daily NYT in brief and have Le News.
