At best, a pothole in the road slows you down. At worst it can badly damage your vehicle, cause a breakdown or have you stuck for hours. Either way potholes are a curse. In Africa, we are far too familiar with these road hazards.
On the way to Durban with my family, I decided to take the alternative scenic route. It was a magnificent day and the drive was spectacular. It had snowed across the country the night before. Occasionally we stopped and allowed the children to play in the snow. Then a pothole spoiled the day. On an awkward and dangerous corner, I almost lost control of the vehicle.
