To face the morning sun, one must, of course, look eastward. The map shows north pointing toward the top of the screen, so which direction indicates east?

The rising sun comes from the east. On this map, that means it comes from the right.

Therefore, if you follow the directions, you should be facing to the right after you take your last turn.

Trying to follow the directions from each house only complicates matters. Instead, why not follow the directions in reverse? Needless to say, going backward means the directions you turn will reverse as well.

Start by facing right, then head left down the road, then take a left, then another left...

## Solution

### Incorrect

Try again!

It would be an awful lot of work to try to check the directions from the doorstep of each house. If you end up facing the morning sun, you must be facing...

### Correct

That's right!

US Version

This is a problem where working backward gets the job done fastest. It takes far too long to check each house individually!

UK Version

Working backwards is the easiest way to solve the problem. The sun rises in the east, so you must end up facing right on the map. To get there, you turn left, right and then right from the starting point. Working backwards, you start from a left-facing position, then turn left, left and right. This leaves you facing downwards. If that was your starting point you would be facing upwards, and there's only one house whose exit faces up.
