Curva del diablo

curva del diablo

 

“Curva del diablo” means “Devil’s curve in the road” (precisely the red sign with white letters in the center of the photograph)and is a place, near Puno city in the highway that connects it with Juliaca city, called thus because there were (are?) so many vehicular accidents; hence adults prefer to don’t take responsibility and instead blame a hypothetical being that if exists I guess has better things to do than helps tired/drunk/negligent drivers to rest in the bottom of the road.

Fortunately these years there are fewer of those accidents; so I guess people these years is giving thanks to the devil for that fortune xD
