Lucy of Toronto,
While I sympathise with your bout of food poisoning, your story of finding directions reminds me of the old adage when travelling round Dublin (close to my ancestral home of Wicklow).
When asking for directions, don't just ask one person. Ask at least five people and go with the consesus!
Which rings true in the joke where you the policeman for directions and he replies "Well, I wouldn't start from here if I were you!"
I'm pretty sure many of us have had problems with directions, I know I have!
