After flying over the ruins, pilots landed the balloons on a sand bar just beyond a line of trees.
Chris informed us that our balloon was too far north and that we’d have to land on the other side of the Ayeyarwady River.
After landing on an island across the river, a crew retrieved our group and took us by boat to catch our bus.
The crew disassembled the balloon while we enjoyed champagne and fruit on the boat.
We saw a “chicken courier” loading his motorcycle when we got off the boat. Seeing this made me think briefly about becoming vegetarian.Balloon flight certificate.
