Take a drive on the wild side
My first experience with driving on the “wrong” side of the road was in the Cook Islands. They drive on the left side there. Fortunately, the road is a circle around the island (Rarotonga), so not much turning involved. I did fine. However, my home was Tokyo, and though I never really drove there, I got used to cars being on the left side. Finally, after 7 years, I went back to the states and borrowed my mother’s car. I was driving down the street and people were honking at me. I rolled down my window to ask why and was told I was driving on the wrong side. After 25 years in Japan, I’ve lost my driving nerve. I hate driving. I hate my car. I want to move back to Japan.
