Brazil to Guyana

Ponte dos Macuxis - Em Boa Vista


BR - 401, cruzando o Lavrado


BR - 401, ao fundo se vê o morro Redondo.


Posto da SEFAZ(Alfândega)


Indo em direção a ponte Luís Inácio Lula da Silva(foi ele quem inaugurou em 2009), atravessa o rio Tacutu, que faz a fronteira natural entre os dois países


Vista do rio Tacutu a partir da ponte, ao fundo se vê algumas serras na Guiana


As imagens acabam aqui, mas dá pra ver ao fundo o viaduto que faz a coversão para a "mão-inglesa", que é utilizado na Guiana, e a cidade de Lethem fica logo após ele, uma cidade pequena mas muito agitada por conta do comércio que cresce cada vez mais

Coming by car, what's the best place to park it in order to walk to the tripoint D/CZ/PL?
Germany, Czech Republic or Poland?

Park at the old PL/CZ border crossing on the Czech side. It's got a small parking area, or you can park in the nearby shop/petrol station. It's only about a 5 minute walk from there. Furthermore, the old buildings are still intact there, and you can see how pedestrians had to walk around the back of the buildings as opposed to simply crossing along with the cars.

The tripoint is quite disappointing however - there are some plans on information boards on the Czech side (which you approach the tripoint from) that haven't been realised, and there's no possibility of crossing to the German side at that point. The PL side now has a small bridge, but you can jump over the stream easily if you so wish.

If you're in the area, it's well worth a small detour to Krzewina Zgorzelecka too for the sheer novelty of a German town having their train station in Poland. Avoid Sieniawka though, it's unbelievably horrible - it looks like how I imagine a Polish border town to look in 1990.

Why is that strange? There's just a bridge missing over the wide Amazon (there's ferry though).

No, there's no road for hundreds of kilometers, only a earth track with wooden bridges occasionally used by off-road vehicles. Try Rio de Janeiro - Manaus on Google Maps, it says that it's impossible (like Rome - New York).
Some months ago a set of pics taken by an Estonian guy travelling around the world was posted on the Brazilian thread.

Oh, you're right, that road became impassable long ago. Well, you can still get to Rio over Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

We need to build a second bridge over the Solimões river. The first bridge(AM 070) over the Rio Negro river was opened in 2012:

It seems like Google maps doesn't find the border crossings with Colombia (neither with Ecuador nor Venezuela) at all. As pointed out by Verso, shouldn't it be able to do that? (Though it would be silly of course.)

From Manaus to Porto Velho it's almost 9,000 km over Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

Map of the contiguous regions of Google Maps: Google doesn't allow to calculate routes between areas marked in different colours.

As for Manaus, (where hopefully tomorrow we will defeat the English team ), I found out that there is a ferry along the Madeira river connecting it with Porto Velho in 3 days. They don't want to build a road because they fear it would help deforestation.

The Pakistan-India border can't be crossed either (in GM I mean).

Mostly geopolitical, but some like China is due to sensorship /Server hosted at different places. Also most are quite obvious that they can't be reached in any form available...

Kamchatka (yes, it exists in reality besides in Risiko) and Chukotka (former Abramovic reign) can't be reached by road. Magadan is the closest place you can drive to.

Iceland is connected by ferry to Denmark but Google doesn't recognize it. But at least it doesn't suggest you to swim.

I don't get why Colombia, Guyanas, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and China aren't integrated in the continental road network.

Does Google take into account that borders between many countries are closed off?
