Puente sobre Arroyo Maldonado

This whimsical bridge connects fashionable Punta del Este with trendy La Barra. While Punta del Este was quiet this weekend, La Barra was nearly abandoned.

Here's a quick video of the bridge.

That's the craziest looking bridge I've ever seen! It looks as if it was left out in the Sun too long.
I also notice it woud be impossible for any boat of any size to pass underneath. Was that the intent of the design?
Art. And it's really funny to pass through it, people love it.
There's a sign in one of the sides of the bridge with a poem that the chilean poet Pablo Neruda made to this bridge. You can see it here: http://travel.webshots.com/photo/1229195239061812803JYypfc
