Hot Balloons, Day 2

We were up at 4 and at the balloon field by 4:40 a.m.

We watched the Glow - where the balloons light up while tethered to the ground -

and Leia was ready to go home and back to bed by 6:30.

We persuaded her to stick around for another 2 hours - mainly because we had the car keys and she had no choice -

Tomorrow we head for home. It's been a great trip, but I'm ready to be back in my own bed.
