You are driving down the road and not many vehicles and then you see the road widen and lots of cars parked up. Everyone was having a selfie photo opportunity. We didnt but if it floats your boat do it.

Stopped for a quick photo. Loved the stickers as make the signs unique instead of just a dull road sign. Just South America left now.

There are more stickers on the sign now.. Fun to take a picture while driving by, but the results are unimpressive. There was actually a queue for groups waiting to take pictures!
