Yes, folks get up at four in the morning, load into buses, and then load into hot-air balloons for sunrise excursions over the vast plains of Bagan. Us? We prefer chillin’ out down here on the ground on the edge of a seven hundred year old pagoda and watching the hot-air contraptions float on by. . .mmmm, aaaahh!. . .who knows what the inspection process is for those babies–I certainly don’t wanna be in one when it is learned that maybe the process isn’t what it should be. I know. . .whaaaa, whaaaaa, whaaaaaa. . .like a little cry baby, I know.
But here on the ground it is absolutely lovely and serene to watch the balloons float along. . .I totally love this vantage point, PLUS we get to enjoy this serene feeling without any of the risk. Rock on, Balloons over Bagan, rock on!
I send you glorious and safe vibes from Bagan. . .feel them. . .they are grounded and spectacular.
It’s lovely out there.
