    ... s actually the Monk's Bridge. Which makes way more sense, since it's built by monks!
    It has a steep staircase going down right next to a waterfall, at the bottom you hop over the little river on a makeshift bridge and up again the other side. We were a little worried at this point if it wouldn't be too much for Alexis, since she already started nagging halfway to the burial chamber. (She actually threw a fit and lay down in ...
