Taking the sea craft off the ground, that’s what it looks like. There’s an engine right behind. It’s a man. He’s equipped to be a pilot.
He probably picked up the plane—it’s a sea craft. Our pilot’s name is Nicholas. He’s very strong. He lives in Kolanaki and he’s taken many trips. Maria would like to go with him back to her country.
We could hear the sound of the engine. The weather looks damp. Nicholas is feeling excited. In his mind, he’s taken off in the air. He’s going to the top of the North Island and then he’ll turn back, just to say he’s been there!
He’s going away to the island for a month. He has to provide the food for the crew. They will have beautiful food, whisky. They will eat at a high-class restaurant—beautiful food with beer—and then a swim in the sea.
He definitely has a family and it would be an adventure for his family to go too. He has a wife and two or three children. He would take them one at a time. If you look closely, you can see people sitting down and in the grandstand. They have come to watch the display.
He is experienced going around doing this. He’s an Amazonian like Maria! She would like to meet him. He is strong. He’ll come back and have a coffee with Maria. He’s going to stay with his family and have a special dinner, which his wife will cook.
After that, he goes around to tell people about his adventures. He would advertise and people would come to hear his interesting stories. He can go wherever he likes!
