A new tourist attraction brings people from near Dubai over my house and through the dunes. I decided to chase them the other day till they landed. There were 3 balloons with the baskets carrying about 20 passengers. They had a great clear morning. The balloons landed near a large labor camp on a Friday morning when the folks do not have to work — they came out in mass to watch the spectacle. Most of the workers pictured are from Nepal.
