#FriFotos: Under the Bridge

Use care when crossing this 200  year old bridge: it has no handrails. (Photograph by Nang Ying Aung, My Shot)

This week’s #FriFotos theme is BRIDGES – and this one’s a doozy. U Pain (or U Bein) was built well over 200 years ago out of teak logs to connect the two banks of the Taungthaman Lake with the town of Amarapura in Myanmar (Burma). Visitors to Mandalay can take a break from dusty, noisy city life by taking a short taxi ride to see the sun set from this remarkable bridge. But you’d better have good balance — there are no handrails!
