There has been more wind and hot air than usual in Putrajaya lately.
First of all in February we had a kite festival.
Then in March the city hosted the 3rd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. These balloons below were wearing the faded logos of Dubai Land, DIFC and Al-Tatweer, three Dubai-based entities which have no doubt had to cut back on their marketing budgets following the Emirate’s recent financial setback. Unfortunately I missed the opportunity of photographing the balloon shaped like Darth Vader’s helmet due to heavy rain. Next year perhaps.
