Balloon Festival

The November full moon is cause for celebration in Taunggyi, Myanmar. The Hot Air Balloon Festival must be seen to be believed. It was a wild and wonderful way to end our trip.


Human-powered ferris wheels. Fried food everywhere.
The fisrt balloon heads skyward. This beautiful balloon spewed fire for at least 30 minutes. BEAUTIFUL!
A wide look at the wild event.

As beautiful as they are, still images can not adequately capture the cacophony of light and sound. Have a look at the videos below to get a better idea.
