While I can describe a &lt;bIQtIq HeHmey rartaHbogh ravHom&gt;

actions taking place on under and around said bridge. If it's important
to Maltz, the bridge in question is a rope suspension bridge with wooden
planked footing, and crosses a river.&nbsp; </blockquote><br>
<b>The word for &quot;bridge&quot; (as in over a river) is &lt;QI&gt;
(one of those weird vowel-final words). Maltz said that would apply to
the kind of rope bridge you described (as well as more substantial
bridges). </b></body>
