“Gohobi” (Reward) for Daniel

Once in a while, after his homework or violin practice, I allow Daniel to watch a video clip for a couple of minutes.

I’ve made a folder titled “LINDBERGH”, which contains numerous insightful video clips:

The making of the Spirit of St. Louis, Lindbergh’s silver monoplane.   www.lovelindy.wordpress.com/2008/7/25/the-making-of-the-spirit

And here it is, showing the (scary!) take-off.  Believe it or not, this marked the beginning of the legendary journey to Paris, which transformed a nameless airmail pilot into a world hero.
