i think she didn't mean it that way... the driving / traffic over there shouldn't be too bad, but just to be prepared and possibly avoid any problems: just ASSUME everyone's an idiot without them actually being one. that way, when occasionally one DOES show, you're not all surprised and run him over.Your stories from deep MA always make me curious. Is it really so bad? I figure it as a good place to be. Speaking of road and traffic, better than here. Or are these just effects of my inconditionate and irrational love for things abroad?
