First US car drive

After visiting the St. patricks day parade in raleigh, decided to go to Walmart. Reached walmart with the help of the map, without much goofup except the indicators and wiper. Intermixed both of them, and it became worst in the way back when it started raining and i needed to use both.

I took a wrong turn on way back and got lost for goood. Went back and forth and all arounf, Tried calling 2 people i know here and both did not pickup the phone. Stopped at a store enroute and asked for directions, the guy was new. Now i thought, i might have chewn more than i can digest.

So back to basics, come back to the Highway u know and again try to retrace the map...problem, u have already exceeded it and 40 E, it to be 40 west now. Anyways went the opposite way on main highway and went round and round, i think for a 6 mile trip i travelled 50 miles. Scared the shit of ppl following me with turned on wierd indicators and off lane driving while reading maps. To top it all, a Big automatic pontiac to drive. And loads of rain making it a problem to drive and read boards....

In the end, found my groove luckily and reached hotel fine. Nice adventure though..Bahut mazaa aaya,,,
