Had a pretty fun adventure today. Palmy was having a festival-thingy, celebrating air, of all things. They were trying to break the Guiness Book of World Records for the largest number of kites in the air at once, currently at 675. Andy and I put together a kite we made out of found materials (though we spent $2 on string and tape) and flew it for... well... it flew. As a whole, we set a NZ record but not a world one; 400 or so. Fun times though, and our kite rocked. The slats were found and split, then we used a mortar bag for the sail. Fun stuff.
