This is the road we take for our morning walks. There have been a couple of times that I really missed the paved roads of Cedar Rapids. Paved roads make for "cleaner" walks. But nothing beats the smell of fresh air here (with the occasional whiff of cow manure).
I drove this road today without getting stuck, but vowed not to take this route again until the dry season. In many spots, there are deep dongas (trenches) on the side of the road where, if your car slides in the mud and slides into one of those, you'd be more than stuck. You'd have to be lifted out!
Anyway, this should make you appreciate city roads in the developed world.
