Driving in Colombia

Up until Colombia, we had happily survived six months of driving in South America. Then a week ago we hit the country, and then I realized all the time we were just prepped for Colombian driving – it is so refreshingly dangerous that it is truly an attraction in its own right.

They say when in Rome, do as the Romans do. So by the same logic, when in Colombia, drive as the Colombians do, I guess? This is Q safely executing one of my personal favorites of Colombian driving techniques. 2011-03-24 10h59m14s DMC-TS2 P1090823

In case you cannot tell,  it was double-overtaking on the left shoulder. Yes, they drive on the right in Colombia. …at least it was done over a dotted central line!

Holy crap!!! That must've been fun. Well, I think it's probably safer on the left shoulder, huh?
