Travel advice for out of towners: think twice about taking the bus

The other evening I got off the metro in a strange neighborhood. I knew I had to go south on Georgia Ave, a major-north south route, but wasn't sure which way that was.

But I was in luck - there was a city bus waiting at the corner. So I stopped and asked the driver if I was walking south.

He was all, "Uh..."

I finally got an answer by asking if it was the downtown direction or the Maryland direction, but he even had to think pretty hard about that one.
