Question for Americans & Europeans; How do you write the date while traveling?

Jump to last reply

On the news regarding the 2 letters sent to Daschle and Brokaw, they keep pointing out that the date is written as an American would write it 09/11/01, which leads authorities to believe it was written by an American. I don't think you can draw that conclusion. I don't know about the rest of you, but even though I'm an American, when I am in another country I write the date so that it is understood by whomever is reading it. When I travel overseas, from the moment I fill out the forms prior to landing, I would write the date 11/09/01. I just got to thinking if it was reasonable to assume that if a date was written the "American" way that an American wrote it. So how about the rest of you? How do you write the date when traveling overseas?
