... at me. He wanted to know if I wanted to buy a kite. I met him in the middle of the intersection and we walked together toward his display.

I asked him what Kite Day meant to him. He said it was just something that he has been doing since he was a very little lad. Every year he makes kites and sells them at this corner. Over the previous two weeks he had made about 200 kites. He sold the kites for $1,800, or $2,100 for the ...

Flying the falls

A travel blog entry by holident
