Notes From Hairenik
April 11, 2008

This morning as I was preparing to leave for work I suddenly noticed a hot air balloon floating not very far from my apartment building, nevertheless it must have been a few hundred feet above ground. I ran to grab my camera and managed to take several shots of the dozen or so balloons that were in the sky, again apparently heading north. While driving to work one of them was landing in Victory Park for some reason. Apparently these balloons are taking off from Republic Square, so early tomorrow morning I hope to head down there to get a closer look. All of these photos were taken from my balcony.
