The scenic Cape Route involves driving along windy mountain roads. Shockingly, the South African approach to road maintenance is somewhat more slack than what we are accustomed to in Germany or, well, pretty much any other place I have ever been to. Every now and again, a road is closed for unspecified reasons, the signs are widely ignored, the closed roads are well frequented and, as we found out, some of them have been closed for over a year. No one seems to be too bothered about actually repairing them, because if it ain’t so broke you can’t drive on it any more, why fix it?
For your troubles, you get views like this…
…and fun obstacle courses like this
This happened more than once
