Building a Bamboo Bridge

Dapitan, 2008

This bamboo bridge was being built to take diners across the river to a new seafood restaurant on the outskirts of Dapitan, in the southern Philippine province of Mindanao. Linked to Louis' Sunday Bridges.

WOW!!! This one is just too cool. I would love to walk across this bridge to eat a delightful dinner. Was it ever completed? I have never thought of a bamboo bridge. It is lovely.
