Balloon Ride Over Bagan - Take Off
We were picked up from our digs at five in the morning, the bus parked twenty minutes later on a clear morning. Next came the briefing meeting over coffee (our pilot on the right). We watched as a small balloon with light was launched to check the wind direction and then we settled to watch as all the balloons were inflated, our trusty bus used as a tether. We loaded up at six and everything was packed away by seven thirty at the other end. Silence, other than when the jets roared, watching the sunrise and a morning mist just after daybreak. Our pictures from watching to airborne.
ALL IN ALL A REALLY SPECIAL TREAT
SO MANY BALLOONS, SO SPECTACULAR
