    I bet they have to figure out an alternate route for the return trip. I traveled on a few roads similar to that one while being driven to a jobsite in Bolivia once. but in a small vehicle even riding in it the term driving a needle with a sledge hammer into a body part would have applied. A couple of times our driver had to back up half a kilometer to find a wider spot and allow a larger vehicle to pass going the opposite direction. I'd have felt safer in a helicopter with the rotor blades taped together.

    That he did and barely just in time by the looks of it. Probably a few passengers suddenly were wearing brown underwear.
