I look up where I’m going on Google maps, take a picture of the route from the Metro to the destination with my phone. I also photograph the walking directions with my phone. And I’ve downloaded a compass app to my phone. (Be sure to get a compass app that works without wifi.) All of this has GREATLY reduced the time I spend being lost. The compass is huge, because at most Metro stops, there are at least four different places you can emerge on the street, often in the middle of a big intersection. So “left” and “right” are useless to you. Still, all in all, I did get lost in Montmartre last weekend, and that is definitely not a place you want to get lost. Not the best neighborhood. This episode is probably due to the fact that I didn’t photograph the walking directions and Montmartre is on many levels.
