that I am much more likely to die as a pedestrian than as a driver.
While driving on the right-hand side of the road has been ingrained
in me since I began driving, thinking that traffic is driving on
the right has been ingrained in me since I began walking. I panic
every time I step off the curb because I forget to look the correct
way for oncoming traffic. Beep!
The drive was
uneventful compared to yesterday. The views were beautiful, but
tame compared to the west coast. I was rained on for the first time
but it had stopped by the time I got to St. Andrews. When I pulled
in to St. Andrews I was expecting a sleepy, seaside village. What
I saw instead was a beehive of cars, people and general confusion.
I found my B&B right away but it took me over an hour to find
a place to park - and then I was about half a mile away.
Now as it turns
out, today was the first day of classes at the University of St.
Andrews, so everyone was in town dropping off their students, moving
into flats and dorm rooms and generally clogging up the streets.
In addition today was the first day of school for Prince William,
who is attending the university starting this year, and there must
have been 1000 police about.
