Hm ... the Oker river is maybe the only way I could manage the cardinal directions one day here in Brunswick, since it divides the city from the North to the South. All the larger streets are either NW-SE or NE-SW. They're far from making up a perfect grid, especially in the old town. Anyway, I've never been good at knowing the cardinal directions off the top of my head. Carsten -- "Miranayam kepauarà naranoaris." (Kalvin nay Hobbes) Tenena, Talbang 7, 2316 ya 03:58:09 pd
