Charlotte ‘easy’ on Brit eyes

Here’s how The Mirror, one of the national tabloids in the UK, begins its DNC-themed travel piece on CLT:

“Barack Obama has a hot date with Charlotte . . . and you can hardly blame him for falling for her charms.”

The smitten Brit author also called CLT “hip,” “chic” “easy on the eye” and “hard to leave.”

And this on the city’s colonial past: “One minute Charlotte’s founding fathers were currying favor with Britain by naming the city after King George III's bride. The next they were severing all ties, getting in the act before the American Declaration of Independence.”
