FLYING SAUNA

Usually sauna's are not airborne but the participants
in the first The Midnight Balloon Rally in
Finland arer doing just that: flying
one in an hot air balloon.


This weekend the night skies over Jyväskylä will
be speckled by about 20 colourful balloons
from 5 different countries.

This rare opportunity for balloonists to make night
time flights between 11 pm and 1 am has drawn
enthusiasts from as far away as China.


The main take-off site is the Laajavuori skiing
centre, where spectators can observe the
setting up and departure of the balloons.

the flights
