Watch: Why driving between North and South America is completely impossible

1w ago



Why can't you drive from North to South America? It's a question that many people have been asking for decades now. You'd think it would be easy to just build a road connecting the whole of the Americas together, but the answer is a lot more complicated than you might realise. RealLifeLore, a fantastic YouTube channel that has educational videos about all sorts of different subjects, has uploaded a video about the whole subject and it's an incredibly fascinating look into the story as to why a Pan-American highway has never been fully completed. It's a story that touches on tropical diseases, drug wars, political insurgency and potential environmental catastrophe and it's definitely well worth a watch!
