What is there to say, it's a sign at the side of the road, spoilt by lots of graffiti and stickers. A quick photo stop.

You are driving down the road and not many vehicles and then you see the road widen and lots of cars parked up. Everyone was having a selfie photo opportunity. We didnt but if it floats your boat do it.

Stopped for a quick photo. Loved the stickers as make the signs unique instead of just a dull road sign. Just South America left now.

Encountered lots of people stopping by to have their picture taken with the sign. It's just sad that one small act of vandalism spiralled out of control resulting in the present state of it. Travellers should take heed to behave responsibly.

Really it’s just a sign in the middle of the desert but it was fabulous to see it and understand what it represents. If travelling along the road it’s a must stop and a photo op.

As we were driving, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a sign that said Tropic of Capricorn. The Tropic of Capricorn, also called the Southern Tropic, is the southernmost latitude where the sun can be directly overhead. The northern equivalent is the...More

There are more stickers on the sign now.. Fun to take a picture while driving by, but the results are unimpressive. There was actually a queue for groups waiting to take pictures!
