Not necessarily the "wrong" side of the road...



... but rather, just the left side of the road.

I drove a car for the first time on these crazy islands today. Logged about 350 km of curvy mountain roads, in a luxury automobile... okay, a 1994 Toyota Camry. Of course we never got lost or drove on the wrong side of the road, becuase "Karl the Kiwi" was always watching out for us from on top of the steering wheel. He's got a complex IMU that can deal with the steering wheel rotations, although, as you can see in his eyes in the photo, he sometimes looks a bit confused.
