The Famous Bridge on the River Kwai. Or at least the latest reconstruction of the Famous Bridge on the River Kwai. With a monsoonal thunderstorm coming in, I didn't spend too long on it, for fear of lightning strikes, and anyway no matter how Famous it may be I'm not that into bridges. Posted by Hello

Hey Mel,
phot's look great. I remember visiting the bridge back in 2000. We actually came up to the bridge in a speed boat (is that how you got there?) I also remember feeling pretty sick (it was the early stages of food poisoning which became worse and worse over the course of the next two days (I lost 4 kg that week), and so not really being able to fully appreciate the location. Like you, I don't really have an interest in war history, but I do remember reading lots of stories about the lives of the POW's working on the railway and being quite moved.
