Backpackers, by now you have noticed (regardless if you are at Ashanti Backpackers in Cape Town) that there is this great big freeway going nowhere.


Well ask 6 different Capetownians and they will all have a different answer.

* No money

* a shop that would not sell up

* the ends were not going to meet up so they just stopped

* no need for the freeway so they did not bother finishing it

* someone stole the money

* to give tourist something to ask you about 😉

After a while you don’t notice them, unless there is a film crew crawling all over it!
