Something about lighter-than-air flight has always fascinated me; as a child I was mesmerized by hot air balloons floating over the landscape. Experiencing it first hand, albeit on a smaller scale, with sky lanterns, was just as rewarding.
Have you had a chance to participate in a lantern festival? Would you care to share your experience with me?
