1.. 2.. Bungee

start

Before I started to jump. My phobia of heights (Yeah, yeah, I know most guys are surprised when I say I have fear of heights ;-)), made me wait a full 5 minutes before I jumped. In case you are wondering why my hands are crossed on my shoulders, it was to balance myself. There was this dead weight that was tugging my legs !

And then, I jumped ! A second or two of free fall.

second

Almost at the end of the jump.

bounce

You start oscillating like crazy. That is when the yippie-ka-yey war cries escape out of you ;-)

clipping

The cable comes down to hosit you back to safety !

hoist

And there you are back !

This was Mexico's tallest bungee jump it seems. 70mts. The one in Bangalore was taller !

    After jumping, you could have sung Mottai's 'Vaanam enna keezhirukku, boomi enna melirukku' to give a cinematic touch to the event ;-)
