You arrive at a new place during your travels and the first thing you are looking for is a map of that new city or town where you will spend a few days or just a few hours.
The first thing that occurs to you is to find that famous Information i where a person dedicated to tourism will offer you all kinds of explanatory brochures in the area.
In the middle of the street you find the one i. It seems to be a claim for information and in turn seems to scream on its own "Idiots that you have no idea where you are going, come!"
You will usually find a fellow who will offer what the City Council prefers to promote among its new visitors. Try to be selective and stay with what best suits your needs: Generally a map, a list of activities and other accommodation and restaurants. You have already got enough travel guide and, above, free.
Locals do not need maps to move around the same places they frequent every day. More than one who has not left the town will find it absurd that there are places like these and that information will seem more like an idiot than anything else.
