@30, yes, those lever ones are dangerous for clumsy persons, myself included. I am only slightly shocked to hear about the impalement. I received a painful bruise once, and they are great at catching your clothing or the strap of your bag and pulling you short, causing great embarrassment.

Brush up a bit before you go. You know, in case you want to read signs and understand what people are saying generally. More fun that way.
