Submitter: This book is living life at my local public library, still giving out 1966 travel advice for those who want to visit Greece. I know their economy has tanked, and I am pretty sure hotels are no longer $8 a night. I am also suspect on those temperatures. I would guess, with global warming, they have risen slightly since 1966.
Holly: This is a prime example of how world events require updates in the travel section. Remember Hurricane Katrina? All the New Orleans books needed updates. Remember the Indian Ocean tsunami? Yup, update. Earthquake in Japan? You got it. Greece is in the middle of a financial crisis that absolutely affects travel. Hopefully our patrons are smart enough to realize that hotels are not $8 a night, but honestly I wouldn’t count on it. Maybe they think it’s a really great exchange rate.
