Up in the Sky
When the weather is fine, you can see this balloon hovering over Berlin. It is fastened to the earth, so it cannot fly away. The name written on it – “Die Welt” stands for the sponsor, the newspaper “Die Welt”.
If you want to look down on the city of Berlin, you can enter the balloon when it is on the earth and then rise with it.
I have my difficulties with heights, so I’ve never thought of going up with the balloon, but I like to watch it – same as I like to watch sailingships with their sails blowing in the wind and would never think of going aboard. Funny, isn’t it?
What about you? Have you ever been aboard a balloon or a sailing ship?
