Boston Arts Exchange

In the past both Melbourne and Boston often set aside a portion of their outdoor advertising space on city kiosks for municipal advert­ise­ments eg arts festivals; the cities simply swapped advertising space to make room for each other’s promotions. Now Boston will look a little bit Australian this northern summer when advertise­ments promoting Melbourne are put on benches and bus shelters around the city. At the same time, 16, 900 ks away, Boston’s image will get a boost on Melbourne tram stops. The posters, which depict glowing night-time images of each city, are scheduled to go up in June and July for a month.

The two cities share strong British and Europe influences, large immigrant populations, many universities, stunning parks and gardens, museums, art galleries, top class public transport, heritage architect­ure, ports, a vibrant café culture and a passion for sport. But they are not going to be taking each other’s tourist trade since Boston should be visited in June-August and Melbourne is best seen from December-April.

Boston has sister cities other than Melbourne: Strasbourg, Hangzhou, Haifa, Padua, Kyoto, Barcelona, Valladolid, Taipei, Brasilia, Sekondi-Takoradi in Ghana and Boston in the UK. Clearly the Bostonians hope to expand their advertising exchange to these other partners later on. Melbourne’s sister cities are, apart from Boston, Osaka, Tianjin, Thessaloniki, St Petersburg and Milan.

I don’t think it is a coincidence that my closest American friends live in Boston. I would add Vancouver in Canada as well, but alas Vancouver is not a sister city of either Melbourne or Boston.

Hopeful Insomniacs Invade Boston

Hopeful Insomniacs Invade Boston
The nation’s sleepless, in dire need of rest, are converging upon Boston for the Democratic National Convention, according to the Beantown Travel & Tourism Agency.
"We’ve heard rumors about how John Kerry speeches are popular among insomniacs," said the BTTA spokesman Marty Rossi.
Rossi observed that people "wearing ratty bathrobes" and "shuffling about the streets in slippers" are seen on most city corners.
An insomniac who requested anonymity said he "hasn’t slept like a baby since ’88," when Michael Dukakis rendered thousands groggy during that year’s DNC

Foreign travel to U.S. disappoints

'We're just not getting the people we should be,' despite a cheaper greenback bringing more overseas visitors to the U.S.
From Monday's Globe and Mail
April 21, 2008 at 3:59 AM EDT
WASHINGTON — Lured by the cheap dollar, overseas travellers are slowly drifting back to the United States following a long exile that began after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Overseas visits to the U.S. jumped 10 per cent in 2007, and the trend appears to have accelerated this year as foreigners hunt for travel bargains in New York, Boston and elsewhere

So lets see ....

Management runs a hotel in Miami .... 9/11 happens and all kinds of air travel is 80% down indlucing tourism ... then a global recession hits.
Hotel fails because management failed.
You're such a dumbass.
Travel agency in Boston sells the Caribbean and Mexico and Mexico closed the hotels b/c of swine flu fears ... and the clients demanded refunds ... to the agency failed.
Because management should have forseen the Mexican government's response to the swine flu.
You're such a dumbass.
