…looks like this:

(only 3mb – won’t take long, honest!)

Not all of the city is this bad, but this particular section – next to marshland near Fidjrossè – is frequently bad at this time of the year. As you’ll realize from the video, I was on the back of a zemidjan when I filmed it, and I certainly got my feet wet! Ideally, either concrete barriers need building at either side of the road (where the marsh is) or even better, the whole section of the road needs raising by a couple of feet.

Yours a tad drenched!
