You’re stranded in a foreign city for a day with no money and no friends. Where do you go; what do you do?
Assuming I’m stranded, I must have just arrived in the city, so the railway station might be where I find myself.
They estimate just under 2 hours, but I think it will take me at least 3 or 4 hours, as I will be sightseeing along the way.
After spending some time at Tiananmen Square, as like most foreigners in a strange city, if there is a local embassy of our nationality, it’s time to see if they can help, out. So the directions to the Canadian Embassy are here http://goo.gl/maps/fqotb.
So today with smartphones are we ever really stranded in the historical sense of the word?
