Merry Christmas
December is not white in southern France, that’s why I send a Santa flying in the blue sky to wish you a merry Christmas :-)
I will take some days off in the white Denmark, so I wish you a happy new year too. Thanks to all of you for following my work. See you in January.

Waiting for Godot

Soaring over Rio de Janeiro under a delta plane or a paraglider is beautiful and easy. You just have to go to São Conrado beach and choose one of the many pilots waiting for aspiring hang-gliders. They take you up to the Pedra Bonita mountain, ten minutes of driving, and then you jump after a quick check up. 

This is theory. In practice, you can only jump when you see the ocean from the take-off ramp. You may not know this, but Rio de Janeiro is very cloudy. When we went there, the sun was shining on the beach, but a big cloud covered Pedra Bonita as we got there.

We saw one last delta plane take off before they closed the ramp. People were waiting, hoping, scrutinizing. Suddenly the fog thinned and they believed they could see the beach. They ran back to their place in the line, shouting “It’s opened! It’s opened!” But the damned cloud wouldn’t move on.      

At the end, we waited almost six hours to get the jump. Here is a series I took between boredom and socializing.
