This was an interesting driving experience

Over the last few years, I have driven on the “other” side of the road (of course, lawfully!) in other countries. Mostly in different Caribbean islands.

It takes a few minutes to get used to. What helps is that the driver’s seat is also on the ‘other” side compared to the US. A driver’s instinct is to keep himself or herself in the middle of the road (away from the curb). So, it works out.

Except some small problems sometimes creep up – like the one I had in Grand Cayman. It took me three days to learn how NOT to turn on the windshield wiper every time I wanted to put the turn signal on!

Eleuthera experience was one level of confusion more! The driving is on the left side of the road alright. But the rental car I got, as you see, is a Ford car with the steering wheel the way it is in the US. So, it is a mix and match problem!!

So far, it has worked out…
