    Fortunately I’d already read most of that in guide books before arriving, but the one I didn’t know was the street signs being on the sides of buildings and not on poles. The first time I stepped out of the subway I hadn’t yet noticed the signs on the buildings and was instantly lost. I knew I was only about 100 yards from my hotel, but it still took me half an hour to find it.
