A handful of spaghetti is what we drive on . . .

A great quote from author Chris Czajkowski about the roads in South America. If you’ve ever been there and seen them, you know!

The roads were incredible. Imagine standing on a high point, chopping up a handful of spaghetti and flinging it over a mountainous landscape. A tiny little curved piece would land here, another there, still another way over there. Somehow, all these bits of road would be laboriously joined together. It would take hours to climb or descend four or five thousand metres.

A cleverly accurate description of a terrain (and road system) that must be seen to be believed!

In memory of Anita M., who loved to travel but ended her journey far too early.
Miss you.
