Some years ago in the 1980s my wife and I took a hot air balloon trip in The valley of the Kings in Egypt. Getting up at un unearthly hour., crossed the Nile on a grossly overcrowded ferry, I even paid a backhander to steer the thing. Balloon was piloted by a mad American pilot who actually dipped the basket inthe Nile whilst crossing it,. Hovered in front of the Hilton (I think) rooftop terrace and then setdownsomewhere north of Luxor for a champagne breakfast. I didseem to enjoy it and have some great pics. Notsure I’d di it again being older and wiser.
