Re: Drive carefully!!

You have to give it to our early civil engineers, very bold !. But I wonder how many men were killed in the process of building such roads !
Where is that - somewhere in Asia by the look of it ! .
Northern India / Nepal ?Huh

Re: Drive carefully!!

The road was apparently built in the 1930s during the Chaco War by Paraguayan prisoners.
