A young boy in is seen here trying to cross a bridge made out of bending green branches knotted together. The bridge is built on raw sewage drain.

A mis-step by the boy can cause more than physical damage. Note the smiling tamaash-been (spectators) on both sides.

The photo was taken in Larkana on October 2, 2009.

    Been there, done that ;)

    Yes, we did it but it was not raw sewage drain. We were in Ghulamullah Sindh. There was a rather calm river that passed through the town and instead of green branches knotted together, we used a branch that had fallen off the tree.
