Minor (with potential for major) mishap #4
On our way from Lumbini to Chitwan in Nepal, we encountered a bridge in need of repair. The bridge could only manage limited weight and was also the only way across the river. Although the bridge had been out for months, the makeshift workaround had washed out in recent rains.
Thus, a long line of trucks, buses, cars, and scooters lined up on either side of the bridge and waited for a new path to be made. Eventually, three hours later and with a little local reinforcement, we were able to cross the bridge – I suppose I’ve been stuck longer in LA traffic!
