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

Why?

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!
