Where am I?

Look at the map. Imagine you're at home and you want to go to the post office. Which way should you go?

Well, I look at the map and I see, that apparently somebody wants me to be late to the post office. I'll try to be on time, so I'll choose a different path than one which is drawn on the map. I like my way, which is much easier to remember than this one presented in the picture. If you're curious how to go from my home to the post office, my next sentence explains it all.
I go straight ahead, passing six blocks looking from the left side of my road, on the seventh block I turn right and finally I'm at the post office.
Besides, I always try to remember that the selection of paths can compose my further life as it has been described by Robert Frost in his poem "The Road Not Taken"
"...Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference..."
*****
I highly recommend watching two movies: "Blind Chance" by Krzysztof Kieślowski and "Sliding Doors" by Peter Howitt.

Excellent! "Sliding Doors" is one of my favorite movies, I really loved it.  I also follow Robert Frost's advise in taking the less traveled path always!  It has been the story of my life.

I certainly will once I am back home!  I am looking forward to it.  I will be frozen in my apartment and will have plenty of time to watch.  Now the sun and sweat!

I like my way, which is much easier to remember than this one presented in the picture. If you're curious how to go from my home to the post office, my next sentence explains it all.

[In UK we don't talk about "blocks" largely because we don't have grid layouts I suppose.  I think you are confusing the joins between the pictures for roads too!]

I must admit that I wore rose-colored glasses for a moment. I wanted to see more of roads. And you wrote to me that construction projects has been delayed again ... Gray reality ... how it hurts my heart ... So when can I expect to see new roads into land of happiness? Will it be possible to see them in the next year to two years?

Hello Danya :-)
Why were you correcting the lines written by Robert Frost? :) Is it wrong what he wrote?

If you're curious how to get from my home to the Post Office, my next sentence explains it all. I go straight ahead, passing six blocks, keeping to the left side of my road. At the seventh block I turn right and finally I'm at the Post Office.

I normally dislike commenting on this exercise - all those directions :-(( , but you have made it a "walk in the park" ;-))

I love the Robert Frost poem, but have not seen either of the movies, I will try to find them. Thanks!

In the UK, we don't say different...than, here is a link:

Excellent, imaginative exercise, as always :-)))
