推推推

我去过 真的好精采
只是现在恐怕已经定不到酒店啰

一定要一大早太阳还没出来时就去看
沙漠日夜温差大, 建议厚外套帽子围巾手套
等太阳出来, 气球就都升空了

只是天还没亮时, 一般傻瓜像机照不了什么
但到处都是火光, 真的很美

Balloon Fiesta pilots wait for balloons from China
By MELANIE DABOVICH (AP) – 1 day ago

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson has negotiated for the release of U.S. hostages in Iraq, Sudan and North Korea. Now he's trying to work diplomatic magic for Coco the Clown, Darth Vader and Burnie the Little Devil.

Those are three of 13 special shaped hot air balloons that have been held for weeks in China in a dispute between a Chinese company and an American balloon event producer. Many are scheduled to fly at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, which starts Saturday and runs through Oct. 11.

Special shaped balloons are created in the shape of animals, characters or objects and are given their own names, much like cartoon characters. Last year, they made up about 13 percent of all balloons at the Albuquerque fiesta.

But this year, the World's Biggest Shopping Bag, the Snowman, Sunny Boy, Nelly-B the Pink Elephant, Woodrow Greenleaf, the Air Ball, the Golf Ball and the Orange may not make it.

"They're all being Shanghaied in Beijing. They're held hostage," said pilot Frank Wechter of Albuquerque, owner of the shopping bag balloon. "So for Richardson to have the Chinese ambassador rattle their cage and put pressure is not a bad thing for us."

The dispute followed a change in shipping agreements at an August ballooning event in Guyang, Inner Mongolia.

A New Jersey company, Promo 1, signed an agreement with Shanghai Oriental Exhibition Co., a Chinese government-owned marketing company, to fly the balloons over and back by airplane so they would return in time for the Albuquerque fiesta.

Howard Freeman, chief executive of Promo 1, said Chinese officials changed their minds and wanted to ship the balloons — which he calls "the Guyang 13" — back by sea.

"To me, it's about ransom money. We had an absolute agreement with SOEC that they would fly (the balloons) over and fly them back. They changed their minds and wanted us to pay the difference," Freeman said.

Freeman said he's had to pay $30,000 in "extortion fees" and an additional $6,500 in late fees to get the balloons back to their American and European owners in time for Balloon Fiesta.

A call made to the Chinese Embassy on Friday was not answered.

On Sept. 21, Richardson spoke with Zhou Wenzhong, Chinese Ambassador to the United States, and followed up with a letter urging a resolution.

"I am working closely with the Chinese Embassy to get the balloons through customs as quickly as possible to ensure that they make it Albuquerque in time to take to the skies during this year's Balloon Fiesta," Richardson said.

Wechter, who has flown at the Albuquerque event for the past 32 years, said pilots of the affected balloons are losing money because they've missed other engagements.

"This is my livelihood," Wechter said.

Gilbert Gallegos, a spokesman for Richardson, said the largest balloon shipment should arrive in New York on Sunday evening, assuming it leaves China on Friday.

Freeman said he'd been promised the balloons would be flown out from Beijing starting Sept. 30 and would be at airports in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York on Oct. 1-4. Due to the start of the Chinese communist anniversary holiday that began Oct. 1, most of the balloons will instead arrive on Oct. 4 or 5th. The balloons then will be transported to Albuquerque.

Freeman said one of the balloons has arrived to its owners in Belgium, and another is expected to arrive in Chicago on Friday evening.

Even if the balloons are retuned in time, there's no guarantee they'll be ready to inflate and fly in Albuquerque.

Pilot Roger Baldwin of Bosque Farms, N.M., received his Blue Dragon balloon from China two weeks ago but it was severely damaged. He fears other balloons also have been damaged.

"It looks like a forklift went through the envelope, tearing a hole, and the gondola is smashed. I could be out $20,000 to make these repairs," Baldwin said. "These balloons are like our children."

Pilot Danny Campbell of Des Moines, Iowa, has canceled plans to fly Burnie the Little Devil in Albuquerque because he hasn't received his balloon, propane tanks, baskets and other gear.

"They're holding a million dollars worth of aircraft," he said, adding that a special shape hot air balloon can cost $50,000 to $150,000.

Balloon fiesta spokeswoman Kathie Leyendecker said she has "every hope that the balloons will be here."

The fiesta attracts more than 800,000 visitors. Some 550 balloons from 38 states and 17 countries will fill the skies during the nine-day event.

Albuquerque的热气球每次约750个热气球,(曾经破千,但因安全问题被主办单位限制),但Reno的只有约100个,所以差距蛮大的,不过Reno的已经很了不起了。

回来了.精彩的没话说.真的是好美.

热气球活动能否进行和天气息息相关.今年的天公很不合作.星期三到星期五的活动都因为下雨或风大而取消.但是星期六开始天气放晴后,我去看了星期六晚上的Night Magic Glow and Fireworks,以及星期日早上的最后的一场Mass Ascension.两场都让人觉得像在色彩缤纷的梦幻天地.虽然为了早场早上四点就睡眠不足的起床,但是值得.

等我照片整理一下,会po几张上来.连我的傻瓜相机照起来都还不错.

几个tips

1.搭他们的park and ride专车非常方便.最后下车的地方就在会场内,比旁边的停车场都还要近.我发现有些停车场距离还挺远的.Park and Ride的票可以6个小时前在网上购买,比在现场买便宜了四成.这个票包含门票在里面.

2.每天早晚的活动都各自需要门票,但是如果因故取消活动的话,这票可以改天再用,但不能退钱.所以建议不要一次就把所以场次的票都先买好.一次一次买就好了.像我星期五早上去了,结果因雨取消,我星期天早上就继续使用星期五的票.我只另外再买星期六晚场的票.

3.Albuquerque早晚温差很大.清晨日出之前可以到摄氏3,4度而已.所以一定要穿暖.参加晚场的话,不要因为下午觉得有点小热就不多带件衣服了.

4.虽然早上大规模的气球升空是7点之后,但强烈建议要5:45前到看Morning Patrol,大约10几个热气球在夜空中冉冉升起,气球的火焰时而在夜空中闪烁,很不一样的感觉.

5.Albuquerque的大众运输(ABQ Ride)去城市里的几个观光客比较会去的区域譬如old town, downtown, nob hills, uptown还可以应付,但如果要去周围自然风景区(譬如Sandia的缆车),或印地安的古迹(譬如petroglyphs national monument),这一定要有车才到的了.我这次三天时间主要为了热气球节而已,所以中间空档主要逛市区而已.完全没有租车.主要都是靠巴士,以及回机场搭shuttle.
