when i lived in florida all the buildings had the numbers printed on the outside of their front door so that if you were hunting for a building or place it was easy to find.. here in TN NOTHING is numbered it seems!! you have to pretty much guess and its so hard to find places!! drives me crazy!! just one simple thing would cure getting lost all the time and make the place more visitor friendly.. where you live are they good about numbering the outside of the buildings so finding places are easy or do you have the same problem?

on my last visit to jordan (about a 5 weeks ago) numbering buildings and posting street names on all streets was going on.. which was to say the least AWESOME because now people can go and come a whole lot easier =)

Considering i live in tn i share your fustrations. Like when i had to go to your neck of the woods for training and could not find the building it was held in because it wasn't labeled. I finally stopped at a building and was lucky it was the right one.

No...it is mandatory in our country to number the house and the number must be well visible to the outsiders, thus not putting people into much trouble gettign tired searching the numbers, but the funny part is that even after knowing the numbers of some of my friend's house, i still find it hard to locate them for there are too many streets here and there everywhere making it really messy to find
