Romancing the Wind with dancing kites

Romancing the Wind

For anyone who may be interested in kite flying this video is well worth watching.  It was recently sent to me via email and I found it wonderful to watch and the person flying the kites has such superb control as they twist and turn and dance in the wind.   Maybe it takes a lot of practice or perhaps you just need to have the knack of controlling the strings.

On a trip to China some years ago I remember seeing a lot of kite flying as we travelled around.  Of course, it is a very popular pastime there but I didn’t see anything as spectacular as this.

So sit back for a few minutes and enjoy the sight of the dancing kites and haunting music of the Flower Duet from Lakme by Delibes.
