Distinguished Stank Troll CJ had warned me about Pittsburgh lefts, and sure enough, I found them extraordinarily useful.
But there was another kind of left that drove me insane. The "Oh My God, They Can't Possibly Expect Me to Understand This" left.
For instance, you need to go across this bridge. What do you do? I just about plotzed when I was sitting at this light.
Answer: you turn left, then right at this "no left turn" intersection.
I've jumped off cliffs that took less courage than this next left. Do you see it?
Of course you don't see it. That's because it's both invisible and subterranean. Your path would be like this.
The red dots indicate where the other picture was taken.
Katrina visited me in Pittsburgh, and Uber was driving us around when she did a double-take.
"Holy crap," said Katrina as we went through a five-way intersection. "We just crossed the intersection of 6th St and 6th St. That's...insane."
"That's Pittsburgh," said the Uber guy. "If you can drive it here, you can drive it anywhere."
