Damn, sounds like a brutal ride!

I found myself dead last, making painfully slow progress. The driver of the sweeper bus behind me alleviated his boredom by live-streaming my efforts across social media via his smartphone.

I visited there 15 years ago or so.

The whole country consists of five river valleys with high passes between that have some bad or non-existent paving

with wash-outs & lots of smelly diesel trucks.

Challenging race for sure.
