I live in Kabul, Afghanistan. There aren't enough signs in the sides of roads or alleys don't have special name or sometimes the names aren't written at the beginning of them. So, it is easy to get lost and it is too difficult to find an address or give instruction to somebody.
Yes, I have given a lot of directions. When I invite somebody by invitation cards, then I usually write the exact address of my house on it. On the other hand, if somebody want to come my home, they should call me to get exact address. Most of time, I should go to get my friends at my house.

Hi. Well, I think it is easy to get lost in my town if you're a tourist, but you can ask for directions to get there easily.

I don't think that someone can get lost in my town. There's a lot of visible indicators with their name and its corresponding number of each street, so they find it very useful to get to their destination. I also have given directions to few people, they understand it quite quickly since the signs are in every corner.

Yes, it is somewhat easy to get lost the first time you’re visiting my town; the residential area is somewhat complex because finding a distinctive reference point proves to be difficult. I have given directions to visitors in several occasions and I often panic when they tell me they’re lost, though with technology these days it’s easy to communicate and solve the issue.

It is not difficult to get to my house because you only need to take the highway from the city. After that, you must take a turn to the left, which will take you into my community. Lastly, turn right and you will have arrived at my humble abode, which can be easily recognized.
