If this image looks somewhat familiar to you, it's probably because you have used Google Maps, one of several excellent sites for getting driving directions from Point A to Point B. These sites are not always perfect, but they are amazing examples if how dramatically the Internet has improved our lives in a very short time.
I am featuring this specific map, however, to make the point that Google is a corporate behemoth you've gotta love. Go to Google Maps and click on <Get Directions> at the top of the page. Type in <New York, NY> in the first field and <Paris, France> in the second, and this is your resulting map. Now here's the fun: Check out the step-by-step directions that accompany the map. Especially the step after reaching Boston's Long Wharf. :-)
Enjoy, and thank goodness for Google. Also thanks to Babs, who tipped me off to this Google gem.
