ok, I understand this.. But there's something which confuses me..

Imagine this: While I'm driving from new york to colorado, I see a cat.

If I say {nyuyorghvo' *colorado*Daq jISeDtaHvIS vIghro' vIlegh}, then
doesn't that mean that "throughout the journey I see the cat" ?

So, shouldn' we say instead {nyuyorghvo' *colorado*Daq jISeDtaHvIS vIghro'
vIleghpu'} ?
