It so happened that our only neighbours along the entire Kuzomen beach turned out to be the famous Boris Vakhmistrov from Kirovsk, a friend of Alexandra’s. He gave us a tour over Kuzomen in his – what are these contraptions called? – motordeltaplane? A small three-wheeled cart with a 500cc motor, with something of a parachute acting as a wing, capable of going up to 30mph horizontally and up to 2 miles vertically.
Alexandra was, as her custom is, the first one to try.
