Yujin Qiao Bridge

Follow the east gate out of Shaxi, and you will encounter a bridge along the river.  This classic humpback stone bridge marks the same path that traders used on the tea-horse trail.

The shape of the bridge reminded me of the 400 yr old bridge in Mostar, Bosnia - the largest single-stone bridge in the world. Although both bridges are set amongst a picturesque scene, the Yujin bridge was very quiet  and was not a tragic victim of a civil war.
