I’ve started to learn to drive. Where I now live people always assume that you drive. I lived in London for 5 years and in London people don’t presume that you have a car, because lots of people don’t. However here, everyone drives their is no local public transport to speak of and everything is so spread out.
I’ve never seen myself driving a car though, and three lessons in, I just find the whole concept amusing, I’m not nervous, I just think it’s funny. My driving instructor (who is the most calm man I have ever encountered) must think I am insane as I giggle like a madwoman while narrowly missing parked cars and pedestrians. I’m hoping I start to find it less comical by the time I take my test!
