Press Accreditation

Backgammon in Jerusalem
I had Press Accreditation from New Zealand to the UIA/AIA Congress in Chicago. As soon as I flew in I went to the Press Room to check out the facilities. There were three typewriters on three desks. My heart sank. I had not used a typewriter for years. Here we were in the heart of the greatest nation on earth in 1993 and there was not a computer in sight. I realised that New Zealand was away ahead of the game.
