... shouting and whistle blowing from the angry pistol carrying policeman. He asked me if I had any cigarettes or spirits on board and had a look in the toilet. I said no and he let me go on which was lucky as I had a kilo of cocaine in the wardrobe and 3 Libyan refugees hiding under the sofas. So sadly although Andorra has been ticked off the list, I can only say I saw traffic and more traffic and for some reason, endless tyre fitting bays. If I go back again, it ...

This time I made sure to get a picture of the sign describing the ascent, which (only in comparison to what I had just done) didn't seem so bad (9.7% vs 9.9%, and only 4 km long). Of course I hadn't accounted for the flaw of averages, which in this case involved sections at 18% and 14%. Apart from ...
