I get this email in my inbox from my uncle. I read, I click…
…three minutes later I’m wiping the sweat from my palms, and shouting “Oh, no, oh you’ve got to be kidding me” at my computer screen.
First, the e-mail:
El Caminio del Rey (The King’s Pathway) is a walkway, now fallen into disrepair, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in Málaga, Spain. The walkway has gone many years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated and dangerous state. It is only one meter in width, and over a 700-meter fall, and over time it has also lost its handrail. Some parts of the walkway have completely collapsed and have been replaced by a beam and a metallic wire on the wall. Many people have lost their lives on the walkway in recent years. After four people died in two accidents in 1999 and 2000, the local government closed the entrances. However, adventurous tourists still find their way into the walkway.
And now, for the first time evar, I shall attempt to embed something in this blog thing place deal. Here goes:
Here’s the original page. Wow, what an amazing place.
