This is the Number 30 highway going North towards the city. Note the mix of traffic. Speeds are from 150 to 80 km/hr or less. So it can be treacherous. And people cut across and pass in any lane. So you need to drive very defensively with the aggressivve part always at hand to pass ahead of potential trouble.

And then you have them here selling watermelons. I pulled over for the photo and believe me after taking the photo is was extremely treacherous to get back on the road!

    We are enjoying your blog. One question I had from yesterday, was what is “Wiki”?

    We were also surprised at how low the temperature is-*only +19. This “blog” seemes pretty technical to me. I assume you have a certain format to follow when you are setting it up. Refer to e-mail for more comments.
