Travel Haiku - Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (New Mexico)



Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta
the sky takes us away
on a balloon

albuquerque international balloon fiesta
we knock each other's bums
before taking off

albuquerque international balloon fiesta
the groom carries the bride
onto the balloon cruise

From October 4 to 12, hundreds of hot air ballooners from around the country hit the skies above New Mexico's mesas and plateaus during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. This year features the Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett race, the most prestigious event in aviation. Competitors fly as far as they can, some staying aloft for more than 70 hours and 2,000 miles. Also be sure to catch Balloon Glow at dusk, when more than 300 tethered hot air balloons are lit, creating a fantastic glowing kaleidoscope.
