Bridge Building 101

The  rebuilding of the Q’eswachaka Rope Bridge, in Peru’s Cusco Region at 11,200 feet in the Peruvian Andes, is a huge local event. Residents replace this bridge annually using the same materials and techniques indigent Incas have used for centuries . It’s the only rope bridged left in Peru.

It’s amazing to see that native Incas had the knowhow to build a suspension bridge centuries ago…

    The word you were looking for is “indigenous.”

    Though there are plenty of indigent Incas too…
