  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post about this bridge in Iran. I was not familiar with it.

    Bridge-builders perform a very important task.

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • When I read the prompt “Bridge,” all I thought was building and blowing up bridges in the wars then I came across this impressive structure. I thought
