India Tour 2017 – Day 4

Day 4 India. I walked over on back on this bridge the day before my 77th birthday. I made it with the guides holding my arm and saving my life so I could celebrate birthday today.

The bridge flooring where they felt safe enough.

Village on other side of scary bridge.

Inside a home in the village. Man is a basket maker. Thought people would like to see i side a thatch roof house. The living area is on stilts above ground. Cooler there maybe. Animals below. Chickens and pigs and cows we saw.

Here are our shadows on the roof overlooking the village and the river we crossed on the bridge. When I was crossing g back on the bridge holding tightly to my guide there were 2 motorcycles and 10 people patiently waiting for me to get across! If they hadn’t seen my plight they would have begun to cross with me way out over the river. They waited because they would have swung the bridge greatly. And I would have died of fright or drowning.

    By the way, I did find your letter about the “present” Jim Ahrens gave to you about the ties for the 4 treadles with the lammes.

  3. You are an intrepid explorer leading the way for the stay-at-homers. Can’t think of a better way to celebrate a birthday—off into the wild!
