Hit the Road Jack

I don't know how it is for others that have to learn to drive in a foreign country, but for me it was very intimidating. Let's just get this out in the open.. I know how to drive and I do it well. I was born and raised near Detroit, the motor city. Cars were a big part of my childhood and being afraid to drive was not an option. But, take all of those life lessons, scramble them up like eggs, add thousands of pedestrians and bikers, a foreign language (that you don't speak or read) and plop yourself on the other side of the world and you have one confused little driver. But a few months under my belt and I’m doing just fine. Only 3 speeding tickets so far. I've decided the biggest inconvenience is the fact that they have speeding cameras, so there is no way to talk your way out of a ticket. They just mail it to you and say pay the fine.
