Cross a Canyon on Peru’s Last Handwoven Bridge

In the region of Cusco in Peru, a unique centuries-old Incan tradition continues to this day. Each year during the second week of June, hundreds of locals gather to hand build a new Q’eswachaka bridge over the Apurímac River. The 124-foot-long rope bridge is meant to honor the Andean gods. Using only natural fibers and no small measure of dedication and teamwork, the community tears down the previous year’s bridge and constructs a new one in an epic three-day feat. Master builders Eleuterio Callo Tapia and Victoriano Arizapana took us through the process and even invited us to the ensuing celebration.

#1 Your point is?? Same river and bridge but this video is more recent and different from the older one. The bridge is rebuilt every year.

#5 and #6 Hahahahahaha...no, JJ, no babies, but I thought you said you wanted 15!!?? ;) :O <3...

NOOO, ComentAtor!!! Definitely not raising $$$s for that one...ever!!!

Been at work, and at home, watching Winter Olympics and Bundesliga soccer on TV, but mostly worked a lot. Now I'm home with sick call from shoulder surgery. That's me in a nutshell! :)
How about you, JJ and ComentAtor? :)

i am very pleased to see sth going on here.. thinking did they put real wasabi in the 300€ dinner they took me to a few nights ago .. and of course trying to forget what awaits me tomorrow
also pleased with the drawing my younger kid did today in kindergarten.. glad to know he feels loved :)
and of course running away from the news (local and international)

#8 Your kid may be another architect ;)

Nothing will await you tomorrow except the same old, same old...wasabi does not have the same effect on the next day as other spicy food, which is due to capsaicin of the peppers, a totally different substance than the one from wasabi, so rest assured!

Yes, the news are getting worse by the minute :x

#11 Sorry Thunders, As there hasn't been any new videos for a few days I haven't been opening the site fully. Snotr does seem rather stuck, but it's not the first time. I think they should change the name to 'Snotr on, on a weekday'.

Sorry to hear about your didgy dodgy Shoulder, interesting that you call it 'sick call' in England we call it 'sick leave' in Scotland, Ireland and Wales they call it 'skiving' Pronounced Sky-Ving! Partly relieved it wasn't yet another baby, getting too many paternity law suits in the post as it is. Hope you are going to hang around this time, it's not the site it was and it is far far worse without the old group, especially you. <3

#12 Oh you were here, so glad O:):)to see you here...it's getting a bit lonely here. I guess we'll just talk back and forth like this until the next videos gets posted but someone disliked your post, no clue why, but I neutralized the -1. Sorry I was wrong, it's called sick leave here too. Remember English is my second language. Yeah, your activity level needs to slow down a bit, 14 is more than enough! ;)

Yeah I never really left, just waited around patiently for you to return lol. There is always some idiot pressing buttons, probably attracted by the shiny buttons. My activity level is jammed at excessive sadly. :D So where have you been Thundersnowing, a rival site I'm guessing<3

#14 Yeah, I think I may have a guess on who is pressing the - buttons, ;) I get a lot of them too...but you know what? I don't care :D. I have been on FB a lot and messenger and whatsapp, talking to people I know and people I don't know. Are you on FB at all? It can sometimes be a waste of time though....also I watch a lot of football, real football, not American football....and you?

Activity level proliferate?? ;)

I hope you look back, JJ, as this is page two of current snotr.
