Hmmm... wonder where I would end up if I tried to do that with a map of New York....
Totally unrelated, though funny story:
When moving me from Montana to here, my best friend and I would stop at fast food places on the way, and pull out a National Geographic star-chart, and go around asking directions.
"Excuse me, we're trying to get here (point to beta lyrae). Could you tell us where we are?"
Only one guy actually pointed to our system, and then gave directions.... he was pretty cool, for a stoned guy.

I saw your "unspeakable horror" floating
around off of I-94 this weekend...
Looks like he's pretty well rested
and perky to me.

Approach a citizen- say you are in Germany. One of you holds the map while the other consults a phrasebook, and asks in halting Italian, which way to the Louvre?

Well that's the beauty of the idea. How WOULD you do that? I guess you'd say "I want to see the Tower Bridge which seems to be in that part of town. I should take this major thoroughfair up ahead to this crooked sidestreet..." etc, etc. And anything that approximated the map in what you encountered would do. This would lead you on a totally random exploration of the urban landscape. It would be orienteering on a whole other level.
