... third pedal thing, and since then I've only stalled at just about every single red light, but I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of it. Just don't ask me to parallel park.

I made my way to the city center, where I found a relatively cheap hotel for the night (80 euro, or about $110). I brought in all my stuff, set up my computer, then decided now would be ...
