The Bridge at Q’eswachaka

Video: The Bridge at Q’eswachaka

Every year, local communities on either side of the Apurimac River Canyon use traditional Inka engineering techniques to rebuild the Q’eswachaka Bridge. The entire bridge is built in only three days. The bridge has been rebuilt in this same location continually since the time of the Inka.

Seeing this just created a hard to describe feeling of amazement, joy and belonging. (via kottke.org)
