I read with intrest the news about a hot air balloon fiesta in Albuquerque because I had an experience of air balloon flight! it was a wonderful experience!It happened three years ago in Turkey,more precisely in Cappadocia.It was very exciting to rise on the sky at dawn up to two thousand meters,flyng over the Fairy Chimneys( wich are special mushroom-shaped rocks),observing a spectacular view and Landing after two hours.As souvenir I have had a "Flyght Certificate" of "Anatolian Balloons Organization"

Hi everybody!
This article is very interesting and funny!
The festival is really unique i think, i have never been at a similar event... these balloons are enormous and beautifully coloured, with different fantastic shapes, and i imagine a spectacular effect in the sky.
I would like to go there in the future, i love to go to festivals in open air with friends.
