Cable car

Toboggan


Dear all,

Well on the catch up again using free wifi in the terminal.

Last Thursday we were on the island of Maderia, a Portuguese controlled island in the Canary Islands.

We went up a mountain that was550mtrs high by cable car. At the top was the view but to get down we rode down in the toboggan. It is a cane chair on wooden slides. It is only controlled by the Two men who hold onto ropes. The roads were very steep and shiny and to go around corners the men pulled the ropes and moved their weight.

There was the potential to be scared but it was quite invigorating when you reached the bottom.

By for now,

Dianne and Paul
