I do complain (sometimes) about the state of some roads in Africa. I do say that it is better to drive a good gravel road than a bad tar road…
The heavy rains (and the trucks) do destroy the roads in Africa, ending up in potholes, growing bigger year after year. Tyres are being damaged, and this year, I even slashed one (even though they are big and meant for these roads).
But in a few hours, a hurricane in the Carribbean can do bigger damages. This was taken a few hours ago, right outside home, just after Hurricane Maria (I am not there and everyone is fine at home). We are not sure if the road is swallowing or spitting this piece, but nevertheless, it only took a few hours to destroy the tarmac.
I think Maria won the contest… In the next few weeks, I will think twice before complaining…. (then I’ll forget and complain again…)
