If I could get to spain, I would. But thats expensive.

You couldn't pay me enough money to go anywhere near that walk... My stomach was churning just watching the vid.

Entertaining though Verifex. A+

I'd do everything on that walk except for the few tight-rope walks across; my balance-beam skills are horrible.

Great video; I wonder what they used the pathway for originally.

Err, yeah, I watched a number of these videos and did a bit of reading on i a couple of months back. The wikipedia article now seems worse than it was, though.

If you don't feel like reading, it was made for the construction of the channel. They needed it so the workers could get to where they needed to go, transport materials (they had donkeys on this thing :V), and provide maintenance. I think it was the only way to cross the falls available then, but it was a while ago that i did the research.
