Warning: Pothole.

December 1, 2012

I daresay the majority of roads in Asuncion are unpaved and in antiquatedly miserable condition. Cobblestone is the number one car killer and potholes are commonplace facts of daily life. While generally unmarked, the jarring cavities that are particularly deep (and often not visible until one is right next to it) will occasionally be marked by vague found objects. I have seen kindling sticks, lush leafy branches, jagged pieces of metal resembling handmade crowbars, and even entire tree stumps shouting their warnings by casually sticking out in the middle of the road.

This is how my neighborhood has chosen to warn of the growing gap on my street:
