Yes, I am recycling the same lame joke that I'm sure every American makes when they first pick up their rental car in New Zealand, but it is very disconcerting to realize that everything you learned about driving back when you were 16 gets thrown out of the window. And that was just the perspective from the back seat - I've not yet had the opportunity to drive. Mark was the first victim/volunteer and did a great job and was a good sport about me and Peter who kept yelling "Stay left! Stay left!" And we did have a laugh when he kept turning on the windshield wipers when he tried to signal a turn.
