Walk the walk!

Here our evaluator, Gottfried ( in red shirt) walks gingerly along the bamboo planks. Notice where the bamboo planks are missing. The bridge needs to be repaired and the people of Alaska wish it would be soon or for a cemented bridge to be given to them.

The bamboo poles that serve as base for the bridge double as “hawakan” or posts to hold on to while walking the swaying, shaking bridge. It is amazing to see the people of Nagpanawan balance cargo on their heads and arms as they walk on this bridge.
