Would you call this a road?

August 28th, 2009 at 01:40 pm

For some people in my country, this is the road they must travel to get to school, or to get healthcare...




And, even parts where it looks gentler can be so slippery, this 4X4 got stuck!! The people in the picture are putting additional rocks on the road to try to give it some traction!!



No, I haven't been there... These pictures were taken by a colleague during their latest trip (yesterday!)

    You should seee the pedestrian bridge over that river! I told my colleague: I guarantee you that, if I had to cross THAT to go anywhere, I'd stay home forever!

    Any chance these photos relate to the Guarjila Transnational Highway project?

    Sorry. That was me, J.o.t.A, asking the question. I could not get my user name to go in the box until I reloaded my browser.

    Joan,
    it WILL be the Northern Transnational Highway, but these were taken on the way to Sesori!


    As you can see, we DO need that road!

    Hmmmm....wait, the last one might be in Chalatenango, as that one was taken on a separate trip!

    Apprentice: NO car would last long on those roads!!! ("our" 4 X 4 is only 2 years old and, believe me, I donīt think the poor thing will last until 2012!)

    wow! thats a pretty bad road. i should take a photo of the bridge i cross every day for work, nowhere near as bad as your road but still pretty bad all the same.

    Amazing. People forget how good they have it sometimes, I think. Pictures like this can lead to an important reminder.

    I am living in SE Europe right now, and although (most) people have government health insurance there are places which also have few doctors, and people end up coming to the cities and dying of very treatable illnesses.
