I often see paragliders over Tiger Mountain on sunny afternoons — sometimes many of them. Noting my fascination, my wife Kitty surprised my on my birthday with a tandem flight with an instructor. I waited for optimal weather, but it never seemed to come so today I decided to have a go at it, even without great lift. I made the flight fast and steep, but it was great fun nonetheless. We did a little acrobatics on the way down, which left me a little airsick, but despite that we made a great landing.
