Non-local-language newspapers

Many expats like to keep up to date with what is going on in their home country. A recent post on Just Landed observed how many of the British dailies are actually simultaneously printed in Spain and are available the day that they come out in the UK. Expats can buy the Sunday Telegraph fresh off the printing press while relaxing on a beach in the Costa del Sol! Very useful for keeping up with the Jones’s back home.

We thought this was interesting and it has got us wondering about other popular expat destinations and the world and the preferred media of expats there. What are the trends in other areas – do other areas have good availability of non-local-language papers or do expats adjust to what is available locally? In the information age, more and more people are turning online for their news but it’s not quite the same as holding a paper in front of you...
