I spent the morning engaged on my pc. Then, someday round 2 PM, I used to be picked up on the major roundabout in Brasov, Romania by my paragliding teacher Robert and a brand new scholar of his named Ioana. Collectively, the three of us drove for roughly two hours to a metropolis northeast of Brasov (the title of which escapes me) the place we drank from a nicely crammed with sulfurous mineral water (Robert, Ioana and the locals beloved it. I believed it tasted like rotten eggs.) after which spent the subsequent couple hours flying with a big group of different paragliders from the realm. There have been most likely about 20 paragliders within the sky at one level. Robert flew in his tandem paraglider with Ioana, who only recently began work at a Microsoft name heart in Brasov. Julian, whom I met final week, flew together with his pal Adriana in his tandem. And I did three quick flights on my own. If the wind had saved up I might have stayed at that location for an entire lot longer.
After packing up our paragliders and leaping again into the vehicles, we drove down into the town and ate pizza on the patio of a elaborate restaurant. The pizza value about $3 USD and was so large I solely at half of it. I took the opposite half again to my house with me. I additionally ordered a big lemonade, which value almost as a lot because the pizza did.
