So, while it was dark and cold, we sauntered towards the grounds. Rix found a spot near the fence dividing the spectators from the hot air balloons and there we waited. While the balloonists were setting up their stuff, a booming voice was welcoming us, listing down the day's events and providing info on hot air balloons. Paragliders also graced the sky and towards the end of the National Anthem, one of them glided past with the Philippine flag.

It wasn't as exciting as I expected, although it was the first time I watched something like that. It was also an uncomfortable experience with so many people in one place and with kids in tow. It was also disappointing that people could be so:
- selfish and mean
- without courtesy, they don't even say "excuse me"
- disrespectful of others, we came early so we could get a nice place with a nice view but they suddenly went in front of us and planted themselves there. We didn't complain anymore since we don't want trouble.
