This Jaipur [karansguesthouse.wordpress.com]Skywaltz [skywaltz.com] The Captain is preparing the Hotair Balloon for takeoff by heating up cold air in the envelope with burners. Almost ready for take off! Captain Fernando's Balloon is already on its way over the drying Mawatha lake below the Amber Fort. The view from the balloon of the Amber Fort Complex bathed in early morning sunshine. The twin burners.The Captain presses the levers covered in red plastic down to get the burners going in earnest and to heat the air in the envelope and in a moment the balloon raises higher. The air inside the envelope is being heated by a blast of flame by burning LPG. Captain Fernando's ship was a long way ahead of us. It was a little windy today. This is the brick kiln near which we landed. There are other kilns too.You can see 3 other smoke stacks in the background. The smoke from these kilns was cutting down the visibility. Children from the village near which we landed.On our way out we had to drive thru a farmer's farm so that we could get to a road which would take us back to Jaipur. The farmer was having his morning tea,then.
