You'd Cross It, Of Course

Atlas Obscura: "Known as keshwa chaca, this is the only remaining example of the Incan handwoven bridges once common in the Incan road system. Made of woven grass, the bridge spans 118 feet and hangs 220 feet above the canyon's rushing river."

  1. Nova on PBS had the local Indians, who had retained the pertinent skills build one of these bridges for an episode Once you see how strong the components are and how well thought out the structure I don't think you would hesitate to use it.

    I might, but Jackie wouldn't. Not even if heavily sedated.
