Globetrotting Kids: Balloon over Egypt

Hi,  I’m in Egypt.

A few days ago I went for a ride in a hot air balloon.  There was a fire and there was a captain. He pushed the button to let the fire make the balloon go higher.

They used fans to inflate the air balloon too. They use hot air and cool air. The captain can make the balloon go up or down but it’s up to the wind outside how far we go. We saw King Tut’s tomb where King Tut buried all his stuff. We also saw some houses and one balloon crash landed on the farmer’s lawn! That balloon had to pay the farmer some money. :)

It was a perfect trip.

Here are some pictures from our day.
