CKK #50

April breezes are right for kite flying in open spaces like the Queen Park Savannah here in Portof Spain, however most first time kite flyers were school yard flyers or back yard flyers, and here in Trinidad and Tobago, many an adult flyer, reminsces about the good ole days of the 'chookie chong' , which is a kite made from notebook paper with a tail also made from notebook paper, the simplest kind of kite to make, and the first kite children learned to fly...
