Namibian Roads

Anyone that has ever driven our roads, will tell you that our roads are straight. And not just for short distances. For kilometers at a time… For as far as the eye can see. I have absolutely no idea why this is. Maybe the Germans (who designed and built the infrastructure of the country) were scared of elephants or had a case of OCD. I have no idea. But here are a few photos of the roads I have driven over the years. Some of them incredibly straight and some not so straight.
