Balloon Ride Over Jaipur, India 2015

The country side around Jaipur as seen from the air provides a striking contrast with that at ground level.  The land was relatively flat and arid with small farms and some mustard fields in harvest.  We also had a great view of a brick factory where camels were used to hall the bricks and raw material. We passed over an extensive reservoir were we noticed a fish kill with dead fish lining the lake banks.  We weren't able to get an explanation of what happened. There was a lot of excitement from the people on the ground as we passed over although I suspect the presence of the balloon was not that unusual.
