Toll Roads

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

There is only one Toll Road here in Guatemala. I’ve travel this route by bicycle several times and last Sunday I had to travel by car. The price was around $1.94. Not a big deal right? Well, this stretch of road is not more than 18.5 miles, the average price per mile: ¢.10 U.S. Dollars. Almost as expensive as those toll roads in the U.S.A. (¢20 U.S. Dollars per mile). Not a big deal right, except for: the average income in the U.S. is around $2,300 monthly and the Guatemalan average monthly income is around $350.
Don’t you love our Corporatocracy!?
