I almost skipped the travel section of today’s New York Times. As I’m planning a ‘stay-cation’ in my hometown this summer — with afternoons on the roof of my building with my computer, visits to my favorite local museums, theater tickets (both ON and OFF Broadway) and the many cheap and cheerful summer events in the city — reading about spending a weekend in Melbourne or where to eat in Pueblo, Mexico or how to choose a brewery in Bend, Oregon is a small torture.
But I’m glad I didn’t skip that section of the paper because there was an article about hunting for BIGFOOT, complete with night vision glasses and a tour guide devoted to the trail. There was even a sidebar story with a Day Tour through the Loch Ness, U.F.O. Sky Watches and a Ghost Hunt visit to New Jersey!
I’m so glad that I’m a Sunday newspaper reader!
