MALE - The China-Maldives Friendship Bridge, the first cross-sea bridge in the Maldives built by a Chinese company, makes Aisha, a 17-year-old school girl, grin broadly.
She no longer needs to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning to catch the ferries for school, nor does she have to be worried that the ferries would be suspended due to extreme sea conditions.
Aisha is thus among the locals and foreign tourists who applaud the bridge connecting the Maldivian capital of Male with neighboring Hulhule island, where the Indian Ocean island nation's only international airport is located.
