Interesting video. In this case, it takes two villages. Tired me out just watching them stretch those ropes.

Good one Harry.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

If that was in the USA, there would be environmental impact studies, worker safety standards, wages standards set, bids sent out, etc. This would take several years. In Peru, the job is accomplished without anyone telling what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. Replacing the bridge each year or so is what is called job security. Wonder what the people do the rest of the time?
Harry, thanks for the video. Hope their government doesn't hear of this and get involved in screwing up a good system.

Thank you for the post. Always educational. We should be so lucky to have such cooperation between communities, or even within one.
