China Builders

While blogging my China trip, not only did I relive the trip and revisit old memories, I heard from several people about fascinating places in China. Xandre Verkes blog answers the question I had about how can  a path be built on a mountain, seemingly without any super structure?  The path we took to Tiger Leaping Gorge was dynamited out of solid rock and spanned  “empty” space in two spots.  Xandre sent me a  message and I looked up his blog.  Click this link to stunning  photos of the daring Chinese workers who build flat up against a 90 degree mountain.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:
