    I recently had the chance to ride the Los Ebanos ferry. The ferry is the last hand operated ferry on the US/Mexico border. For 50 cents you can walk onto the ferry and cross the Rio Grande into Mexico. You can even pull if you want!

    Wow, that's cool. I had no idea that people still did it that way. Honestly though, I never knew people did it that way at all! LOL

    It wasn't too long ago around here when there were pontoon bridges across the Missouri river.
