Eighth Wonder

Concrete ideas (a recurring theme) - now a bridge spanning a gorge is a great example of one. Norman Foster's Millau Bridge in the Massif Central in France is a true wonder of the world.

I remember the press coverage when it opened a year ago, but the Top Gear boys went there last week, and I decided to check out the website. The webcam lets you enjoy the weather as well as marvel at the fine architectural design. It is truly astonishing how they managed to construct the thing so far off the ground.

I haven't yet seen the clouds underneath the bridge but that must be a sight to behold.
