|BEGINNING THE CLIMB.|
Twenty-three years ago, we were stuck in a ski lift (chairlift) in Vermont with our friend Judy. While we waited in the air above Mount Snow, Judy and I commented on the spectacular view.
San Geraldo was not pleased. "Stop turning your heads!!! You're shaking the chair!!!"
We were stuck for about 10 minutes — maybe less — at a height of about 30 feet.
San Geraldo says we swung wildly over a 500-foot chasm — for more than two hours.
Admittedly, there was a really big boulder below us. It would have hurt.
So, I suppose Benalmádena's Teleférico is one thing San Geraldo will likely never experience.

GETTING THERE (IT IS HALF THE FUN).
Maybe some fairy dust would help San Geraldo.
Then again, maybe not. He'd still be airborne.
I remember seeing this on TV for the first time in 1960 and it gave me goose bumps. It still does. (I won't grow up, I guess.)
