This story is so strange, so wild and outlandish that I cannot believe it.
I have tried to tell my son about the hot air balloon cyclists of the late 1900's in South America and how before the government banned them they had traffic signs and intersections 7 floors above the ground in many of the major cities. It sounds so unbelievable I don't think he knows what to make of it. I can hardly believe that happened myself.
This I just can't believe. Yet, there seems to be evidence that there is something to the story.
Might make an amazing premise for a book, actually. Like the "League of Aerial Gentlemen."
