With a dozen people in our basket and the capable captain Mustafa at the helm, we enjoy a dreamy glide over Turkey. Halfway through, our captain tosses Super Ted from the balloon. Mustafa learned to fly a balloon in 2002 in Albuquerque. A single Muslim man learning to fly in the USA just after 9/11, he attracted all sorts of attention from our government. I felt perfectly safe in the balloon of Mustafa.
