    Romancing The Wind

    The guy flying the 3 kites is in his 80s, and he's from Canada. He flies at the Washington State International Kite Festival every year. His skin is like leather as he normally flies with his shirt off. He is deaf, so when he flies people hold their hands up and wave them for applause. He flies 2 with his hands and the 3rd one is attached to his waist.

    Make sure the volume is turned up because the music is wonderful and totally reflects the soaring of the kites.

    I posted this on a FJR forum and a fellow from New Mexico had the same problem.

    That's pretty cool.
    For those who couldn't view it, I'd guess a google search would turn it up in a format you can access.
