Think your commute is bad?
In a Chinese village children are forced to cross a raging torrent on a steel cable to get to school. Nearly 500 children, from the Maji village, cross the the Nujiang River each day. The children fasten themselves to the cable with a metal carabiner and a rope and slide across the 200 yard wide canyon. The villagers say that usually four-year-old children are taken by their parents, and begin to go by themselves from the age of five.
