Paris Woman Journal
Then, I thought STOP IT! Try a paper from a place that’s totally foreign (I don’t want to get in a rut). The first paper I chose was from Bhutan. I guess I was going through the list more or less alphabetically.
Here's a recent sample from the Bhutan Observer:
Tshogdes short of candidates
22 October 2010
The biggest thromde tsogde, Thim Throm, does not have the minimum required number of aspiring candidates to contest in the upcoming thromde election for the post of thromde tshogde tshogpas……..
…….The voter population of Thim Throm is 6,486 and it has seven thromde tshogpa demkhongs.
A little more difficult than I thought. I won’t be understanding Bhutan from browsing the front page over breakfast.
An interesting note is that the Bhutan paper lists the TV schedule for the evening. To tell the truth, it doesn't look much different from what they air in Paris (that's the worst thing I'll ever say about France).
The Fiji Daily Post
Cook Island News
The Kathmandu Post
These ones were easier to understand.
After going through this mind improving experience, I have to say that I'll be sticking to the New York Times and France 24 for my news info. I'll browse the international papers, but there's foreign, and there's totally foreign. Of course I still have a few hundred other sites to check out.......
