Lifestyle Reportage / Balloons over Theben
Hot Air Ballooning over Pharaohs Land - Balloon baptize
Much to fast the 45 min flighttime is elapsed and we perform a really soft "egypt style" touchdown inbetween a field not far from the Collossi of Memnon.
The groundcrew is accompanied by a horde happy looking children, which follow the landing balloon over the harvested fields. The Pilot lets the balloon in the state of uncertainty and the helping crew tears it to a nearby street, where our escort vehicle with the groundcrew is waiting. Carefully to protect the touchy Balloonsilk a cover is rolled out over the stubblefield. When done the Hot Air balloon is carefully laid on the side. A snow white horse nosy cocks one's ears to follow our hectic activities with great interest.
The mandatory Champagne baptize needless to say is cancelled in Egypt, because we are in a strict Islamic country where alcohol drinking is not allowed.
