The Sunday Papers

Today I finally found a newsagents that actually opens on a Sunday. Although the vast majority of other customers seemed more interested in buying scratch-cards, I was able to acquire DNA and Le Monde to entertain me over breakfast.

There isn’t the same sort of newspaper culture here as there is in the UK. Most ‘Sunday’ papers are actually sunday-monday papers because almost no-one works on a sunday, including journalists. So you have to take your time reading the Sunday editions, savour them right through to Monday night, then pick up the threads again on Tuesday morning.

But this means if anything happens on Sunday – there’s a chance you won’t know about it until Tuesday.

“Read all about it – the day before yesterday’s news! Read all about it.”
