One of my weekly joys is to read local news from my previous "home" countries. Friday usually sees me checking out the online editions of the Great Yarmouth Mercury, the Eastern Daily Press, both Norfolk, England newspapers and the SUR in English, the weekly Costa del Sol newspaper.
And there are the funnies . . . . my favorite this week (again in Spain) is the story of a Romanian burglar who broke into a house in Benalmádena (my old home town) and got away with several items of jewellery. Unfortunately for him, he left his cell phone at the scene of the crime, which helped the police to track him down and make the arrest. He also left behind his tools with which he forced the entry.
Perhaps we're not so different in the global world as we like to think we are.
