Diary entry

23 March 2014

Dear diary

Today has been an absolutely wonderful day. Boet took me for a flight in his bushplane,”Jinx”. After checking the runway for holes, we climbed into the plane and taxied to the runway. When the engine was warm enough Boet pushed the throttle forward. Before I had even noticed that we were moving we had left the ground behind and I could see our shadow quickly shrinking.

Flying is the most wonderful feeling. The whole world seems to be spread out beneath you. Miles upon miles of Karoo bushes and the shiny roofs and green water tanks of the town. I just wish I could skip to tomorrow morning when I’m going to fly again.

Yours secretly

Hjalmar
