My heart goes out to those whose loved ones were lost in the Luxor hot air balloon disaster. Also to the survivors.
We went on one of these very same hot air balloon rides over the desert a few years ago at Luxor also. It was magical – as my photo above shows. They tend to do them first thing in the morning when the air is the right temperature.
For such a tragedy to happen in such idyllic surroundings on what should have been a joyful and memorable sight-seeing journey, makes the whole thing unspeakably awful.
