Balloon Festival

I've been on the highest roller coaster ride in the world. I've visited Sex Museum in Amsterdam. I've walked through the streets of Paris. But nothing prepared me for this.....



Kids posing at the basket





Inside the balloon




Inside the tiny basket




Getting ready for lift off




Bye Ayah n Atief!



Low level dancing...just above the waters




Picture paints a thousand words


All my emotions were wrapped up in this amazing scene. I've never felt more peaceful in my whole life. No sound. Just me and the balloons...dancing around in the sky.. slow motion...
Subhanallah...

More pics here and here.
