One of the things we were excited for was the availability of cars that are not in the US. In addition to various models, there are also entire brands that are now available to us. The image below captures some of these options.
Starting in the top left they are: Renault Kwid, Volkswagen Amarok, Renault Clio, Citroen C4 Cactus, right hand drive car, Renault Sandero, Ford Kuga, Kia Picanto, Volkswagen Polo, Opel Adam.
In addition to the new cars we also have to get used to right hand drive, and driving on the left side of the road. I’m sure we’re going to have some scary moments as we begin to acclimate to our new environment.
The traffic so far appears to be normal large city traffic, and nothing like I experienced in India.
It looks like we will be in our permanent house in early March, and we’ll hopefully have a car by early next week. Continuing the positive theme, day zero has now been pushed back to July.
