WAZE, the user-friendly, Israeli GPS, has not only served me well throughout the country, but also steered me straight from Dallas to Durant, OK and back again. But yesterday, when I set off from Jerusalem, it routed me through the bowels of the city, to streets and alleyways that I never dreamed existed– nor wanted to visit. Then it plunked me down behind a long line of unmoving cars/trucks.
Finally, an hour later–after long, hot minutes in standstill– it announced “a traffic accident ahead.”
WAZE navigated me to a traffic accident!
When I turned around however, (setting off a flurry of other turn-arounds, enough to stop me in my tracks for a while), it snapped into action, re-routing me out of the city.
I reached Ramat Gan faster than the speed of light, hot and sweaty, to make up for losing my way(ze).
