Stairwells and fitness centres

Just got out of a 40 minute fitness centre “induction”, which consisted of watching a video. Have a headache…

After a month here, I find I’m still furtively glancing both ways before crossing the street. I’ve almost got it down. Along the same lines, people are constantly dancing in the stairwells of the library, as so many of us are international students and aren’t really sure which side to walk on. I was always taught to walk on the right in grammar school…guess I should ask someone what the rule is here;)

so they walk as they drive…on the “wrong” side of the walkway?? Have you ever wondered how this all came to be, i mean people driving..walking on different sides?

Are fitness centers any different over there? Did you actually sign up, or was it “we’ll give you two weeks free if you listen to our sales pitch”?

I did sign up….£35 for the entire year, which is a very good deal. That includes all fitness equipment, pool, classes (yoga, pilates, aerobics, etc.)
