Up, Up in the Air
That's me. First time in a balloon of any sort. Tethered, of course. But I'm the one with my hand on the throttle (and the "red line" for letting the hot air out during too rapid an accent). This was at the birthday party last night for balloonist Robert Etherington, who gives splendid hot air rides over the best part of Tuscany, the Unesco World Heritage designated Val D'Orcia.
