Visitors, Near and Far

Wilfair HQ has the great honor of hosting a bevy of interesting visitors, including readers from places quite distant from California: The Netherlands (hi, Chiara), Sweden (Ulrika, hooray!), UK (Kelly and Mary, holler) and Canada (cheers, Laura).

I'm chuffed about this (to borrow a UKism). Extra chuffed, actually, for there might be a few more international visitors here. Thank you for stopping by and please know I'm excited to see the same countries pop up time and again on my dashboard.

Have I missed anyone? I think one or two readers I've chatted with might live outside of the U.S., but I'm not sure. Drop me a line, I'd love to know!

Hotels are international places; I do believe they are the most international place in any given city, save perhaps an airport and university. You're apt to hear a number of languages in the lobby over the course of a day and the sign-in register, if a hotel still uses a register, will log someone from practically everywhere over a couple of years.

A blog is not a hotel, but a blog about a book series set in hotels can certainly aspire to a similar spirit, I think. I'm grateful to meet people across the planet as well as people who are a state or two, or even city or two, away.

Hi Alysia! *waves*

I love international places and the sound of different languages in my ears and then I love to try and figure out which languages I'm learning.

And generally I love that the internet has given me the opportunity to friend people internationally :)

Isn't it true? The internet has its challenges, but that is a huge gift.

And hi back, Chiara!

Chiara, I thought of you today when I saw this great Margaret Atwood quote. Bookmarking it:
