Free And Falling

Free And Falling

zambia stamp

My heart was beating off the chart. I had just sprinted along the 130 meter-high bridge spanning the Zambezi River, trying to get to the lift-off platform. The border guards had warned me that I was too late, and that jumps had stopped for the day, but I was in Africa where “too late” could be discussed. After a few minutes of chit-chat, a large elastic cord had been secured to my ankles, my toes were over the edge, a warm wind was blowing through my hair, and an awesome canyon spread out ahead. It was time to fly: “3…2…1…BUNGEEEEEEE!!!”
