The sidewalks were busy, and the streets moved quickly. Too caught up in taking pictures of the intricate and vibrant graffiti art on a lively alleyway, I lost my group. My small leader was hard to pick out of a crowd, and the group had already rounded a corner. I figured I should probably hustle, because getting lost in the middle of Melbourne, Victoria didn’t seem like a good way to spend my first day in an Australian city. Dodging person after person, I tried to pick up the pace. It didn’t occur to me that I was charging directly through the center of this alley. Suddenly, a cluster of people approached - they were either all in a hurry, or they were very accustomed to the city-goers style of walking - fast and ruthless. To avoid getting in the way, I scurried to the side of the road. However, I made a blatantly foolish mistake. I felt a swift “THUD” before it occurred to me - I was in Australia. In this country, they not only drive on the left, but WALK on the left. Clearly un-amused by my blunder, the group rushed past, around, and practically through me as I tried to correct my mistake and get to the left. Feeling quite silly, I finally reacquainted myself with the group. Clearly, I had a lot of adjusting to do.
