Passersby are generally helpful and willing to give directions when asked. When driving, one can can either get directions from a gas station attendant, or stop and ask a pedestrian. It is also common for drivers to roll down a window and ask the driver in the next car. Streets tend to be well-marked with signs to major neighborhoods and other destinations. When traveling out of town, one can find maps for sale in convenience stores, gas stations, and airports.
