Flying squirrels (and a mouse)

Photobucket 

Queenstown in New Zealand is a strange little town. Here people do crazy things like jump from bridges and they claim that it's fun. I decided to do something really wild and went to a barber. After a hair cut I jumped down from the historic Kawarau Bridge

I took my adventure mate Ivan with me. He jumped the bungy jump in my pocket. The jump itself went so fast that I didn't have time to think anything. The rubber rope let me fall down close to the water surface, pulled me up and then down again. Finally I was hanging down there and a rubber boat rescued me.

That's me in the first picture. After me probably a 70 years old grandpa jumped - like I told you, people do crazy things here!
