If you're used to driving a monster sport utility vehicle with automatic transmissions on wide roads, prepare yourself for small cars, narrow lanes, expensive gas, and standard transmissions.
If it has been awhile since you last drove a four or five-speed standard transmission, brushing up before arriving on Spanish soil is a good idea. Otherwise you may wind up on a steep, narrow one-way street, nervously absorbing impatient honks of a stream of drivers behind you.
Or, as we learned the HARD way, not being able to get the car in REVERSE!!
We had to bring it back to the Stone Age and do it a la Fred Flintstone style!
After three "REVERSE" pushes like this, we finally figured out how to get the gear shift to do it for us!
So much for trying not to stand out like TOURISTS!!!
