Most Ominous Roadsign in World, Maybe

Gridlock, Namibian style

So I was going through my photos of Namibia and I found this one. It was taken about sixty klicks south of Rosh Pinah, on the MAIN ROAD through the Fish River Canyon and the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park, into South Africa.

The Namibian Highway Department weren't kidding about the hazards of that drive. It took about three hours to do those eighty kilometres: I saw one other car the whole journey, and about a hundred baboons.

Namibia is the best.
