B for Breathing Bridge
I was breathless with wonder when I beheld this beautiful breathing bridge in an Indian village by the border of Bangla Desh.
Buttressed by bamboo and betelnut trees, the bridge is woven from the roots of living Banyan trees. Flat stones are kept on it so that bicycles and bipeds can pass easily. on it.
There are some Breathing Bridges in the region which have celebrated their bicentennial.
I thank Mrs.Nesbitt and her team for hosting ABC Wednesday.
