Very Nice!  Next holiday you guys should try some pass the top tricks.  I think the two of you have the skills to make it happen.

Good Going Cecil !!

the transfer of skills ,culture, stories from one generation to another is so important

here in corsica there has been a"broken link": the kids  from 14 to late 20ties do not know
anything about fishing,watering a garden, fishing, hunting or even checking the oil in a rent car(..)
the passing has been lost!!
sometimes they can make up for their ignorance  with the smart phone,( but the batteries need recharging >:D)

Thank you. My Grandson is 21 now going to school and working, so he doesn't have much time for Trompos. This was just a warm up for him. When he's warmed up he is nothing but MAGIC with EVERYTHING. If I was rich I would send him to Columbia to learn from the street performers.

This happen about four years ago. They took the video off you tube so I redid it with different music and added a few more pictures. It's the day that four CHAMPIONS showed up.

That is a Cometa top made in Mexico. Gus brought a lot of them to give away. I hope that day happens again.

Gus sent me a few days ago this video (dedicated to Jakub and Daniel  ;) ):

Unfortunately, all the main demonstrators of Cometa lost their US visas because of a big snafu of the company  :(
