Look what I got!

Actually, there is quite a bit more to kites than meets the eye. When I was a kid, I thought all you had to do was glue some paper or plastic sheet to a couple of sticks and attach a string. Needless to say, I can’t distinctly remember any significant sense of achievement in combination with kites.

    Used to put squadrons of those little foamie stick together aeroplanes loose under the cross beams of kites and just watch them drop from height doing different tricks.

    Used to love to fly a kite so high, you could barely see it. Well worth the string burns I got on my hands.

    I never became skilled with kites myself, but here in Rio de Janeiro, specially during school´s vacation the skies become crowded with kites, to the point of being described in NOTAM to warn pilots of potential hazards.
