  On my first visit to Andorra, it was one big building site, however, much of the architecture was well thought out with beautiful houses. Sadly, the construction isn't so carefully planned today, and Andorra's attractions are getting lost in a sea of concrete.

  The road out of Andorra la Vella is very busy, with large articulated vehicles pumping poorly digested diesel into your lungs. From this road, though, through the fumes, you see most of Andorra!

  The summit at Port d'Envalira was surreal, a high altitude altar to the Gods of Petrol. Some stations had been sacrificed to make space for the newer service stations. A short descent to French passport control before the next climb, Col de Puymorens.
