Talking There's no light at the other end ...

Somewhere near the headquarter of the 2006 AdvRider European Rallye:

Passo di San Baldo, Italy. The photo shows both the entrace and exit of the "lowest" of the 5-or-so tunnels, each having a switchback, no light and being so narrow that traffic is regulated using traffic lights :-)

Still on the same trip ... the road that leads to Samnaun (between Switzerland and Austria). Lots of narrow tunnels with bends, two cars can usually not pass each other.

... and now, where's my photo of the Col de Parpaillon ...

Galeria dei Saraceni in the italian Alps. It's about 800m long and is a U-turn. Approximately 3m wide and no light in there. This is the only passing place.

The lower photo shows the train actually crossing over itself. Kind of neat. Lots of tourists were waiting to see this specific train go through, we just happened to show up about 5 minutes before it got there.
