In Costa Rica they put odd numbers streets on one side of town and
evens on the other, so "Calle 10" is between "Calle 8" and "Calle
12", while "Calle 9" is on the other end of town between 7 and 11.
I found this out the hard way while looking for an address only to
discover the street wasn't where I'd expect it.
