Subject: Re: Interesting Internet Cafes!
Frances and other Ziners, The oddest experience I had was sending messages from Venice, using a keyboard set for Italian (I assume), certainly not English. I touch type so I merrily went on my way composing travelogues for friends. Well, the apostrophe key wasn't where I expected it to be which meant that I couldn't use contractions in my messages. When I re-read them before sending, they had all sorts of odd *^%% in them so I edited to exclude contractions but they seemed stilted, as though English was not my first language. Needless to say, my friends wondered what was going on. Lucy Toronto (are we halfway through winter yet?)
