Mind the gap

I hadn’t realised it was impossible to drive from Central to South America; it turns out there is a 90km stretch of Panama/Colombia borderland without a road. Fancy roughing it in a 4×4? Bad idea. But don’t take my word for it — here’s what what you’d face, as listed by Dark Roasted Blend:

  • tough nasty jungle with plenty of disagreeable wildlife
  • impenetrable swamps
  • crazed drug traffikers
  • pissed-off guerrillas
  • greedy kidnappers
  • paranoid government police
  • no marked trails

I think I’ll stick with an aeroplane.
