2013 1stHELP: Where am I? Where do I want to be?

Where am I? Where do I want to be? 2012
Simple answer:(Viewer 3.2)  Look at the white navigation bar near the top of your viewer window. You see: The name of the sim you are in and the name of the parcel.   Right click on the navigation bar to see some options about what it displays and what you can do with it.  I like to have it show coordinates and parcel properties. 
This article applies to Viewer 3.2 and above.  Other viewers may be different.
