A TROUBLED BRIDGE OVER WATER
Mae Hong Son, Thailand
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli
In our adult lives we have done
some 'adventurous' things. At least we would like to call it that...
This bridge looked safe enough
to walk over.... from a distance! (The gathering of huts below were for people
to relax, while drinking the local beer or whisky and watching the sun set or
Our driver assured us that it
was OK to walk over. "Mai pen Rai," he said. But we hesitated, thinking we
would view the bridge safely from afar.
He even said he would take the
lead. "C'mon! Follow me!"
He said, "stay in the middle"...yeah
right! Half of the boards were rotted, the other half were spongy and no good.
What did we get ourselves into here?
The view was serene, though
our knees were wobbling, thus shaking the bridge!
What happened to our driver
taking the lead? What do you do at the halfway point? At least we see the end in sight!
Notice he's clinging onto the
rail behind me (!) and Akaisha is clinging to him! Thanks guys!
(Even so,.. how is that going to help if the bridge collapses or we fall
Needless to say we made it, but
this is one of those things when after it's over we scratch our heads wondering,
"Why did I do that?"
