The Hot Seat


The Hot Seat

So now that we have the car back, it's time for me to take the driver's seat and work on my driving skills. I think that learning as you go is the best way to do it. I probably wouldn't even bother with a theory book unless I had to do the test to get a UK licence. I thought my main problem would be getting over this craziness of driving in the wrong side of the road, but it's actually sitting on the other side of the car that throws me off. The gears are on the wrong side, my special awareness is set about a meter to the right, and I bumped my right elbow three times into the window trying to reverse.
I'll get it eventually, but it's a learning curve. One full of scared pedestrian and scratched parked cars.
