Driving Tips

Yes, I drove. On the wrong side of the road...for a few minutes. THEN I wanted to enjoy the scenery and so we switched. This may be a good spot to share that finding things around here is a CHALLENGE. There are NO street you drive until you see a "big white pole" or until you find a corner with a pachinko parlor on one side and an Enesco on the other.....needless to say we've gotten lost quite a lot this week. Yesterday, Mike took our geocaching gps out and began marking points when we arrive, so we can find them again.
Oh - my driving tip - which my family thinks is a hoot and you may not -
Keep Your Hiney on the Liney!
If I say this over and over I tend to remember where I'm supposed to be. ::snort::
After the stressful driving experience the family unwound with a rousing game of HORSE and Around the World.

Yep, that's the driving tip we all learned, too! Japan looks good on you!

Have you driven in the rain yet? I have never driven over here, but my US friends often say they mistake the blinkers and wipers!

BTW, I LOVE to see Mike playing with the kids! Ahhhhhh! Soo wonderful!

KIM - I turned the wipers on all day today....and it was raining so it was't quite noticeable but it really was funny!

Mel - Japan simply looks GOOD - doesn't it? I already don't want to leave in 3 years. LOL

LOL! I can only imagine. I'm glad I won't have to worry about driving on the wrong side/right side in Europe.
