The second day in Bagan, 19th, early in the morning with sun rising, we went for an excursion in balloon. That was our first balloon flight ever
and we were excited. Altogether there was 3 balloons with 8 passengers each. The view from balloon, with first ray of light, the morning fog and
Irrawaddy river far away, was simply magic.
The highest height that we reached was more or less 450 metres. Our pilot David, an Englishman working from many years in Burma, scared us flying, sometimes, very low, under the height of monuments and trees.
Under these lines you can watch a little movie of our flight; 54 sec., in AVI format (640 x 480).
The landing is the most complicated and dangerous operation, for this reason, David asked all of us, before and during the flight, to exercise us for a safe landing. The landing was great, very soft and at the destination point an excellent breakfast (fruit and champagne) was waiting for us, to toasting for the successful work. Every one received the certificate of their participation.
