Siena, Italy VIII, Italian Landscape Painting

Siena, Italy VIII
Siena, Italy VIII

Sometimes we wonder how in the world we could survive life before the internet.  But somehow we did.

In those days, traveling far from home meant a difficulty to stay current with the news, and a traveler would often feel isolated for better or worse.  While in a foreign land where there was a language barrier, TV offered little help.  Placing an international call home was a luxury, especially for a young backpacker on a budget.  Sometimes I had my family and friends from home send letters for me to a place like the American Express office in a country where I was traveling, and I would pick them up when I got there.

During my first visit to Italy, I learned a quick stop at a newsstand could satisfy my need to know the world's biggest news if I could just skim the headlines of any English-language newspaper they carried.  When I saw this newspaper kiosk in Siena, nostalgic memories of those days came back.
