paragliding fly at 500m+ at Popricani, Iasi, Romania

We had no air traffic for today at Iasi airport so we' were permitted to climb high, an excellent day for free fly with paraglider: a lot of instability, very low pressure (1004 mb), milky sky full of cumulus clouds, moderate to low NW wind. We where only 2 pilots: me and Cezar. Thermals were everywhere although our hill at Popricani is quite small (100m). My friend Cezar got around 150m easily while I took the opportunity to reach 500m. Both of us were flying Nova wings: Rookie and Syntax.
