is that a street or a bike path?

There is a reason why cars here are so much smaller. Clearly I have not driven outside of the states, ever. Throughout my city the major streets can be “normal” sized, and if I’m lucky there is a sidewalk. But in the neighborhoods between homes and moats (more on those latter) are narrow little roads. In the states these roads would be considered narrow for a one way, but they are in fact a two way street. This explains the size of cars here, my family’s CRV at home is considered a large vehicle. A hummer may not even fit on the road.  As if the questioning the width of the road wasn’t bad enough there is usually a ditch on one or both sides of the road.   Lucky for me, I don’t have to drive. Just being a passenger is nerve wracking enough.
