Photographer's Note

Another one from my archives. I think Kathmandu has changed a lot since then. This was the swing bridge over the river in 1983, a very precarious crossing with loose and missing planks, chain side rails and the bridge swinging in the breeze. People hang l;aundry over the bridge railing. During the dry season many of the locals prefer to cross the muddy river bed rather than risk the bridge. It was certainly quaint, although rather scary.
