We've had heavy rains this year in Libya. More rain than we've seen in many many years. The countryside is green and full of wildflowers. The fields and orchards are full of bounty. This is all well and good. But there's a downside to all this wonderful rain.
The rains have made driving treacherous. The roads are full of standing water, deep puddles and in some areas the roads are in a state of being washed away. What were once big potholes have now turned into HUGE potholes. In some places sinkholes have formed that are large enough to swallow up entire cars. I'd take pictures but I'm too busy trying to avoid falling into the depths of these chasms.
My theory (one of them anyway).... if the NTC wants Libyans to feel like they are doing something right for this country, they should get busy and repair the roads! Most of us are in our cars for a few hours every day. We'd REALLY appreciate it if the roads were safer.
While they're at it they can collect the rubbish that's piling up everywhere too. But I'll save that for a later post....
