a trip to IKEA

Laurent did not want to drive me there today, so I had to go there by myself.

Not much in my shopping list there, but well, haven't been there for a while. So I hit the road this afternoon.

Well, last time I drove there myself without using the free GPS navigation system, I got lost half way. So, I used the GPS device this time. The trip is 13.8 km, and the old GPS predicted the trip would take me around 10 minutes.

Today is a nice sunny day, not a bad weather day, no rain, no storm (and no beautiful snow either). And I did not see any accident on the way. I left in the afternoon, it took me 40 minutes to reach IKEA, and 43 minutes back. My math told me that the average speed is a ridiculous 19.95 kph (km/hr).

Few days ago, Don pointed out that his trip to his reputable RIT took him 13 hours. It was understandable that it was just after the over-reaction of American government on those (richer) states. Anyhow, the trip from picturesque Quincy to reputable Rochester is about 650 km (according to Don), and my math told me that the average speed would be still a pretty acceptable 50 kph.

The conclusion: Sydney's traffic is simply a joke. No where can match the advanced United States of America's superb road systems. Also, BMW is, without a doubt, faster.

No wonder millions of people wish they could live in the advanced United States of America and own a BMW like Don.

No, it was the most direct route there, and the GPS agreed.
