Algeria's Bridges: Bridge near Zemmouri

Another bridge with the ubiquitous blue steel railing. 

As you may have guessed, I was in Algeria to look at bridges after a M6.8 earthquake that occurred in May of 2003.  The most serious damage was to a couple of long, continuous span bridges that moved off their bearings and had to be cut into simple spans before they could be jacked back in place.

My mother was just telling me how glad she was that there were no devastating earthquakes to drag me halfway around the world when the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake occurred the very next day.
