Hiding Defined

RPK is not hiding!
Just so we are clear about the meaning of the word hide in English: be or go into hiding; keep out of sight, as for protection and safety; “Probably his horse would be close to where he was hiding”; “She is hiding out in a cabin in Montana”. Now that we are clear about the meaning of the word, I’d like to quote this article from TheStar that says,

Raja Petra, who was earlier reported to be in London, is now believed to be hiding in Poland based on a recent posting on his news portal.

Unfortunately, this is an inaccurate use of the word – hiding. It does not look like RPK is hiding anywhere. Now, the more appropriate word to use would be visiting or vacationing because that is obviously what he is doing. The photo’s exif information indicates that it was taken at 1022pm on NYE. Odd!
