The distance direct is a mile, but by the road it is ten. It is over this highway that the American Red Cross hauls all its supplies from its bases at Teodo and Cattaro for interior points of Montenegro and Albania. The route is very dangerous at many points as the rustling hulks of trucks and cars at the bottom of the cliffs will testify
