Armed Forces skydiving championships in Luzern.  We were walking home from school this afternoon and up the quai from the Hotel National were men and women falling from the sky, all landing on the same air pillow.  It turns out that there was a small circle in the center of the air pillow and a digital pad that would calculate how precise the skydiver could land on the center with one foot.  All were spot on or not far off, but we did see two that missed the pillow completely.  Luckily they didn’t land in the lake.  Countries from all over the world were being represented, and it was a Chinese woman that hit the target perfectly when we were watching!
