Yup. Mitzi does that, too. She will show me escalators while making it
clear she would prefer another way of getting up or down stairs. /smile/
In a new place, we tend to circle the perimeter so that she can show me
the things like restroom, stairs, drinking fountain, and Starbuck's. I'm
usually listening for sound cues inside the space. So it works. /smile/
