Steep and Deadly

According to the Guiness Book of Records, this is the steepest street in the world. It is Baldwin St in Dunedin, New Zealand. Dunedin is one of the places that we visited on our cruise on "Voyager of the Seas". OK, I can hear lots of you thinking that the one in San Francisco where all the movies are made is the steepest, but this is the steepest continuously sloping street. The one in Frisco has several flat bits on it where other streets cross it. No, the Oldies wouldn't take me up it because the only way allowed if you don't live there is to walk. Actually, there were some Uni students killed on the street a few weeks before we were there. They decided to race down the street in wheely-bins. They crashed into cars and fences near the bottom of the hill and were really mangled. No wonder I am not allowed to try some things like that even if they look interesting.
