...and some more stuff, which might go wrong. They forgot to mention spiders, crocs and sharks.

Having done some scouting, I can confirm that everything is the same in this respect; to compensate for the other hemisphere, motorcars are simply driven on the other side. I remember this effect from RSA and Botswana  ( ;) ).

 

I'm sure you will manage, though :)

 

I have also trouble to find Polaris in the night sky. There is a cross for compensation, though ( ;) )

Maybe for you Stefan, but not for us. Cheers

I'm quite fond of my new theory and conclude rather, that you are by mistake in the wrong hemisphere :)

Just for once and all .... driving on the right is the wrong way :).

The Greeks and Romans marched on the left. Austria Hungarian empire was on the left of the road. French aristocrats drove their coaches on the left but as the peasants walked on the right, after the revolution, all traffic went to the right.

Many countries in Europe switched to the right side of the road in the 20th century ... only the islands are left.

I was always told that driving on the left was a logical progression from the knights who carried their swords in their right hand on horseback, and therefore needed to pass enemies on the left in order to attack....

Today, Melbourne drivers still use that same method of attack!

Most lethal in the world, IMO. Except perhaps for the 'Taswegians'.

Maybe it has something tyo do with Latitude. The further South ......... etc.


Cheers,
Erl

 

My vision is unique. My Leica makes it remarkable!
