my 'rents live in Southern Spain and the main roads are super smooth; they're beautiful. But the extreme heat takes it toll, as the a/c is working flat out day in, day out, and the interior is scorched under the ferocious, relentless, sun. They have a rough 'n' tumble Focus, and it's bearing up really well. But the only thing that's more damaging to their car other than Mother Nature, are the locals; the Spanish have no respect at all for a car. It's been rammed, bumper parked and (i've personally seen) scratched down the side by a family eager to hit the beach. To be clear, i'm not saying they vandalised it deliberately, but it's not always in their mind set to care for cars like my 'rents might. My folks have given up caring now.
Even in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.
