Roads are not always marked by name, and the signs that are there are usually where they are going, or the neighborhood they are near, and sometimes they change names at a round about. There are 5 concentric arcs more or less evenly spaced away from the Corniche in the southern part of the city – called, simply enough A, B, C, D, and E Rings. In the northern part of the city there are streets that are the logical continuation of these rings, though they are called by another name. Crossing these rings are three roads that you will get to know well – Salwah Rd, the main shopping and restaurant street; Grand Hamad Street, the road that runs more or less through the center of the souqs; and Madinat Khalifa, the road that runs to Education City. Directions are given not so much by street names as by roundabouts, and sometimes by roundabouts that no longer exist. Should be a breeze for Pittsburghers!
