Moving from a small city of around 200,000 to a metroplex of over 7,000,000 requires a few adjustments. Learning to navigate the multitude of highways and different routes to get places is one of the biggest challenges we’ve faced.
Driving through the Metroplex
The overpasses and bridges are amazing. They overlap and seem to go every which way. It’s always a great day when we end up on the right one.
Sitting in Traffic Happens Daily
