Kite Women from Around the World

It's not what you think.

We just received a packet of photos from Guy Gosselin in France. He has prepared a series of kites featuring illustrations of women from around the world. The kites, and the paintings are exquisite. We thought they would make an excellent holiday gifts.

The Pear design was brought to Europe from Asia in the 15th century. At the beginning of the 1900's, it became the most popular kite style in France. Traditionally, the flat kite is made from paper stretched over a wooden frame.

The Goselin Pear is crafted from hand-painted silk and white spinnaker on a carbon frame. They are 21 x 15 centimeters -- about 6 x 8 inches. Your cost is $96 plus $15 shipping -- but if you order now, we'll pay the shipping for you. But please act quickly since each kite needs to be made and then shipped from France.

We have other news. In the coming weeks, we will be announcing plans to organize a team to the incredible international festival in Weifang, China. Check our travel pages for the tentative schedule and itinerary. You can also look at the Updates for April, 2000 for photos of the last sojourn.

We expect prices to be about $100 a day for hotel, all meals, domestic transportation, and guides. We plan to connect to China using United Airlines which will cost between $750 and $1500. So the total price is looking like $2500 max. That's a lot of money. But remember, you couldn't go to Cleveland for two weeks and spend that little...

Meanwhile, we're still tabulating the results of our Great Disaster Survey which is posted in last week's Update. I suspect the owner of the Windbabies may have voted more than once but I can't prove it. Log in and take a look.

Talk soon!.
