I am sure of modern people don't know which way the sun or moon go, let alone the stars. Living in Copenhagen and suburbs did not help, but the confusion when arriving in Australia and everything really was upside down and back to front, that took a long time to get used to. I was not alone in that.
Ha, they even drove in the left side instead of the right!
