Directions – look for landmarks
While streets do have names here, it is not the most common way to give directions. Most people come down to giving directions to where they are at by describing what the landmarks close by are and often the color of the building they are in. It is more common to know the actual name of someone’s house over the number.
For example when we were in town, we always said the apartments above Mickey’s and across from Barefoot books. If that reference was not enough we threw the in the well known monkey sub shop sign.
At our current place we tell people big house with tall wood fence beside the white house and across from the hardware store, if more info is needed we add in down the street from the black and white bar. I do not know what our house number is here and I’m pretty sure it would not really make a difference if I did.
The other night at Sharon’s I was listening to her tell the pizza person where to deliver and she said go around the corner from crystal and down the road to the peach house. Come to think of it I do not even know what her road is called.
