Wisdom from the Road #74

On feeling overwhelmed
When feeling overwhelmed:
Keep your wits about.
Take deep breaths.
Be calm.
You can do this. 

Nagoya Station is Japan's (and the world's) largest station. JR, Shinkansen, Kintetsu, Meitetsu, and Nagoya Subway lines all converge here. Different train lines, different gates, different levels, different exits. I found myself in the belly of this beast of a station and I felt like I was in a computer game: I had to figure out how to get to the next level and the next level until I could go out of the station. Yes, it took me quite some time, but I finally found the right exit. Without going crazy.
