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.

Eva, this bridge photo has great potential, and great to see your photos of years ago.
Pity the lady is not facing you, but then life wasn't meant to be easy. I have a bit of a problem with the non vertical wires holding the bridge up, so I have done a workshop, and boosted the saturation just a bit also, but have no more postings alowed today, so will post tomorrow.
