Hi, it's me. How's it going? I guess you're at work and you don't have your phone on, right? First of all, thank you, THANK YOU for the birthday card and message. I received it this morning. That's so nice of you. I'm organising a little party for my birthday. It's nothing very big – only a few of my best and closest friends. That means you too! We're going to have it at my cousin's house. She lives in the countryside in a nice big house with a swimming pool. I'd love to see you there. It's going to be this Friday. I'll send you the instructions on how to get there later, OK?
Anyway, have fun at work. Don't work too hard, OK? Talk soon.

Aw, you're still not answering your phone! OK, here are the instructions to get to my cousin's house for the party. Are you going to take your car? If you take the car, drive straight on Forest Road until you get to the motorway. Drive past Brownsville and take exit 13A. That's 13A. You drive down the road there and turn left. It's the first big house on the right. OK? If you're taking a bus, you can get the number 80 to Brownsville. Call me when you get there and somebody can pick you up in a car. I can't wait. This is going to be so great!
Yes, many times, people get lost in my city, because it's very big and little signpost. I have given a few times directions to people, but I don't locate them well on the streets and motorways.
i leave in medium town, but near to my house you you found multiple building and a lot of streets, also a people whose sell a things.
for me it's easy to found my house, however my friends get a hours to found it.
Yes all of the guests they lost when visited me because my town it’s wide and the maps didn’t work in my country so that’s one of reasons here but by the way I feel comfortable when I help people
Yes it is easy to get lost in my town because My town is so crowded and wide. I sometimes gives directions to visitors.I love help to visitors.I think Every people have to visit to Turkey.Because İt has amazing culture and hıstorical area.
right now is difficult to get lost in my territory cause there is a technological aid which help to get the right directions and car's driver those like a Google map but in the land
Yes, a lot of times cause i live in big city with every day improvement on roads with a lot of changing and a lot of new bridges. Government trying to solve jam problem and crowded streets when i get lost i use google maps to find my way, yes, i described a route to a visitor i tried to be simple and direct
No, it isn't. The reason is my town is not large, I'd even say it's so small and I know this territory completely because I walked here a lot and know all the places, and sometimes it's boring for to me walk here and I want something else. And no, I've never given any instructions to the visitors. I was asked though. However
I'm so shy and just go: 'I don't live in this city, I'm a guest too'. Maybe it's odd. And so sorry for my mistakes, I know my English isn't good, and if you want you can correct me)
Not at all, here (Caracas) it's very easy to locate, because in addition to giving the address, we use references
yeah absolutely, it's easy to get lost in my town because it's big and has a lot of alleys, i rarely give directions to strangers because of the internet now and google maps
Yes, it is. Sometimes, I have given directions to tourist, and to coworkers when come to Colombian offices
