Getting lost

One of the unfortunate realities of moving to a new place is that you spend a fair amount of time in your first few weeks getting lost. Juarez is kind of dusty and flat and there aren’t a huge number of things in the part of town that make good land marks so I’ve been using billboards and signs. Tragically, there is going to be an election in about 2 weeks so the signs keep changing! I almost missed my house again today because between this morning and afternoon someone went out and stuck up a bunch of signs for a candidate and thanks to all signs I couldn’t see the entrance to my complex until I was pretty much on top of it. I suppose on the bright side I’ve seen a much larger swath of Juarez than I intended thanks to all getting lost, but Dear Juarez, it’d really appreciate it if we could have a little stability when it comes to advertisements.  Every time an ad gets changed, that’s another 10 minutes on to my commute time while I try to readjust and figure out where the heck I am.
