Which is not to say you can't get lost elsewhere in America,
heh, it's the freeways that used to confuse me in the states, they only let you see the nearby destinations, and the geographical direction ie Highway 501 N, but never the long haul directions or big cities/landmarks that i find helpful in other countries.
I have few talents so I don't mind bragging about those I have - have an internal compass that almost never fails me. I almost envy people who can get truly lost by their own doing and stay that way for any period of time.
i'm the total opposite, get lost as if by destiny in all possible situations, the good news, many of the most beautiful spots i've found ware fruit of getting lost, so now i try and relax and enjoy it, and if it's for work, i leave extra early so i arrive unstressed.
i envy some people whose sense of orientation is uncanny. i was moved around a lot as a kid, and have noticed a correlation between strong orientation skills and being raised in one place, where confidence in one's navigation skills starts early and is strengthened by repetition, building confidence, which then helps to sharpen the instinct even further.
still gathering data on that... anyone else want to share if they were raised in one place and have good sense of direction, or vice-versa?
