First impression – a standard of living well above those of the suffering people in the war-torn States to the West. Second impression – there is enterprise on the motorway. Highway Women stand beside the tarmac flashing their wares at trucks flashing past at 100 kph. Quickies in the cab are on the menu, going rate NZD 20.
For this motorcyclist the sudden appearance of one of these Highway Women serves only to bring on a severe case of tank slap as I apply the brakes a little too vigorously.
