Blessed with beautiful weather, Tashi took part in the Epiphany celebrations held in Mondovi on January 6th. In picture perfect conditions she twice flew into the blue sky alongside a specially invited group of Italian balloons.
Tashi and the team received a very warm welcome from the people of Mondovi, many of whom gathered to wave and cheer as she flew overhead. Tashi has been the subject of considerable media attention, appearing in many national and local newspapers including pictures on the front pages. All of this coverage has generated considerable interest about why she is flying and now many people are talking about Tibet.
Tashi will be flying on both days of the International Balloon Meet held in Mondovi on the weekend of January 9th /10th.
Below are a selection of pictures taken during the Epiphany flight.
