Gearbox in right wheel drive

Hi

I'm from europe.
Just wondering.
How is gearbox when your steering wheel is on the right.
In EU first gear is (5-speed manual) left up,
second left down, well you know how it is.
But is it the same when the steering wheel is on the right? Or you gearbox then is first right up.

thanks.

Ya, it seems weird to me but right and left hand drive have the same shift pattern.

makes sense. the shifter is in the same place. and re engineering the cables for the opposite pattern could be difficult.

but i never knew what it was like.
