Our palms are sweating from reading about the opening of a suspension bridge in Hunan China. At 180 metres above ground, the structure is suspended on two rocky mountain peaks 300 metres apart. To up the fear factor, the bridge has a glass bottom.
The bridge is said to sway with the wind. Can you imagine how much it would rock when you have a few other people crossing it at the same time? It’s not clear whether the authorities have imposed a weight limit for the structure, if you’re wondering.
If you get cold feet in the middle of the crossing, there are specially trained ‘ushers’ to coax you to complete the journey. We don’t envy the ushers’ job – much less the cleaners who have to clean underneath the bridge!
