IN THE TRAILS OF THE FOREST

Take off toward the immensity, in spite of the immortal weed that was hooked in the pleats of the parapente, in spite of the whims of the scanty wind...

Beside the condors

One, two, three, jump: Take off toward the immensity, in spite of the immortal weed that was hooked in the pleats of the parapente, in spite of the whims of the scanty wind, hardly a caress in the clear dark morning, in the hesitant and transparently gray afternoon, in the one that a group of sportsmen, decided to usurp the sky of the condors.

The paraglider becomes a floating point, in the horizon reduced by the peaks. Free and sagacious, invincible and powerful, the pilot faces the turbulences, the treacherous currents, the thermals that push it up.

You already to go, I told him and until almost you the comely thing: yes they will fly. You didn't believe me and I looked at myself with face of what it passes this lunatic... How touching, caray, how he rises, how he turns and turns, if until it seems that he was playing with the wind. It is a "marvel", how I could think that they would not achieve it. Gentleman, don't forget my advice and stop being pessimistic. He is still young.

Surprised expressions. Absorbed looks. A peasant uses for the first time a smile of fright, a lady drowns a sob in her hands sarmentosas, the children - rosy-cheeked and in frayed jumpers - rub shoulders, call out and they open their tremendous wide eyes, because the invisible hand of the wind will take a man to the stadium of the town.

"The summit of Wayanai is a magnificent place to fly", it is Ismael Ortiz de Zevallos unappealable verdict, an experienced, enthusiast and veteran hang-glider that he doesn't doubt to predict that Cotahuasi, for its beautiful landscapes and its splendid thermals, will become one of the favorite places of the children of the wind from all over the world.

Everything ready for a new take off - he tells me, gentleman, is it the third or the fourth - The pilot checks his wings and holds up a paper to find out in what direction the wind is blowing; then he looks at the abyss, the radiance of the calamines, the imperfect line of the streets of the town. He gets ready to jump.

He tells me that it is the third; therefore, only missing the young lady, but she has already failed in a couple of opportunities. He doesn't remember that in her first intent there was a tremendous thump. It even hurt me to see it. Well, each lunatic to their own. Don't you think?

It is her last opportunity. She knows it, for that reason she concentrates and asks them to stretch out the sail well... suddenly, the wind stops to be a caress and the paraglider fills out. People get upset: "let's go, you can do it, you are already in the air". The take off is successful. There is a flying and moving point in the sky.

The summit of the Wayanai is empty. There is no longer the man that didn't want to be wet blanket, neither the young boy that didn't know how to use the machete nor the peasant that used for the first time her smile of fright. It is only the wind, the weed that never dies and a couple of defiant condors that drift in circles, as if they want to demonstrate that they continue being the sovereigns of the Andean skies.
