WIW - those para-sails are a lot more maneuverable than I thought.

We see a lot more of them down south here than I ever did back home.
Probably because of the mountains and updraft winds they can utilize to stay aloft.
Thought one guy was going to crash into the side of a tall building, but the wind lifted him up and over it, so he must have known how the winds were near it.
Saw another guy though, who started pumping his chute frantically to keep from hitting some high tension wires.
He actually got the chute to climb a good ways by pumping on the lines, then another wind carried him higher.
Although I flew planes, and rode in a glider several times with my uncle;
As for me and my old bod, I keep both feet on the ground now, hi hi.
