This is an Inca rope bridge (Qeswachaka) above the Apurimac river in Peru. Rope bridges were simple suspension bridges over canyons and gorges (Pongos) that provided access for the Inca Empire. traffic was limited to pedestrians and livestock and were an integral part of the Inca road system …
This bridge is known as the most dangerous bridge in the world. The Hussaini Hanging bridge is only one of many precarious rope bridges in Northern Pakistan. These rickety cable and plank bridges are long and poorly maintained. Planks go missing, and strong winds shake the bridge as you cross it.
OK 1 more. This is how one scales Putucusi, (Peru) it is a hike that brings you up adjacent to Machu Picchu, it is said to be about 5 stories high. One hiker hiked for 4 days over the top of the Andes on the Inca trail to get to this ladder.

I lost my cell phone today. Won’t bore you with the details, suffice to say after searching and searching some more, it has not turned up. There are a few more steps to be taken tomorrow, but the long and short of it is that I simply will likely find myself with out a phone. (cell) Didn’t use it much, will I miss it, it will be inconvenient at times. However…interestingly I am not really concerned. whatever happens it will be for the best. I believe that.
Would I cross the bridges I’ve shown you in this blog. If I needed to get to the other side,and that was my option, yes I would. Would you?
Peru – me and you?
