Not only do they drive on the opposite side of the road, they put a round-a-bout every 6 feet to pay back Americans for our arrogance and brovado and make us feel like the dumbest idiots on earth.
I will never make fun of any foreign drivers going slow in the left hand lane again. They are trying to do what’s right. That’s the slow lane at home.
There is a nice mall 2 miles from the airport in Edinburgh. I decided to go there and wait till my friend landed. In 2 miles there was only one turn. A left. However, there were 5 round-a-bouts and trying not to exit into oncoming traffic, I exited at the wrong place 3 times…and this is won a GPS.
I’m also 3 for 3 in getting in the car on the wrong side.
You also have to be a PHD in neumasmatics to figure out the worth of the coins. I’m going to end up leaving with $500 in change…or may three and a quarter.
When I get outside the city and all the signs are in Gaelic, I’m going to make a wrong turn and end up being tally whacked by a Highlander.
However, the people here are fantastic. Helpful, friendly, although taking quite a bit of amusement at the expense of my struggles. Going to be a great fortnight.
