Re: Been there, done that
You've got to be careful driving past your headlights on Central American country roads. I've seen mules, dogs and once a herd of goats basking in the residual post-sundown road-top heat.
The goats were so numerous that we couldn't get past them, and felt obliged to go door-to-door on the few local huts to find out who owned the herd and ask them to help/approve moving them. I gave the guy a couple bucks for getting his herd out of the road, and we went on our way.
