Though, by the time it gets back to the beginning person it's not quite the same. If you are traveling internationally the last thing you want is to get your information that way. That's why your home newspaper might not be the best way to go for international travel warnings. It probably won't give you nearly as much detail as you would get from a local newspaper in the country you are staying in. Though, if it's not in your language it doesn't really help.
