International Newspapers

I get most of my news online, but sometimes it’s nice to relax in a London cafe with a newspaper printed on real paper.  If you don’t want the news in English, here are some other options which I spotted on Marylebone High Street W1, and Columbia Road E2.

If you live in a really posh house in Marylebone, you don’t need to venture out to a cafe. You can have the Financial Times delivered to your front door (I’m pretty sure that the pages aren’t pink enough to be Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport).

    I love seeing newspapers in different scripts. When in Israel I bought a newspaper in Hebrew to use as gift wrapping. Here I really like looking at the Hindi language newspaper – Shanti Dut. I can make out a few of the letters, but rarely enough to have any idea of what is being said. (and no idea what “Dut” is either, come to think of it!)

      Do you want more Indian scripts? Look back at this old post of mine from 2012 – https://distantdrumlin.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/not-english-or-hindi-2/

      Newspapers are surprisingly hard to read in other languages. The only thing that I ever managed to read in Chinese newspapers was the weather forecast, and even that took intensive lessons with a teacher.

    Are doorknobs frequently centered like that?

      Yes, they are. Now you’re making me think: Do I actually use the knob on my own front door, or is it just decoration? It’s no good for opening the door; I just open the door with the key, and push. But when I’m leaving the house, I do pull it shut with the knob.
