USA election results

Wednesday morning was significant because we watched the USA election results live on CNN a small Indian shop. A huge cheer went up from the crowd of foreign tourists at the end of Barach Obama’s victory speech.

Then went up the hill and watched people fly for a while then launched and just “boated around” enjoying the view and air. Highlight was thermaling with Himalayan Griffen Vultures

Finished off by cruising out over the landing area at a high level then doing a “spiral dive” – this was my longest sustained spiral that I’ve done. Maximum descent rate was 14m/s – was rather exhilarating. Landed in the main landing area for the first time and watched lots of other wings come in::
