Tashi wowed the crowds at her very first night glow held at the Lorraine Mondial Air Ballons meet in Chambley, France on the evening of July 29th.

The Tibet balloon stood centre stage alongside 61 other balloons lighting up the sky and drawing attention to the Tibetan issue. Tashi was surrounded by photographers and journalists keen to learn more about the aims of the project and significance of the Tibetan flag.

The entire event was captured by webcam and screened live by France 3 TV. Tashi stars in many of the photographs posted on their website

Next week Tashi will be travelling to the Bristol balloon fiesta where she will glow in front of a crowd of 100,000 people. You can follow Tashi’s travels on Facebook and via Twitter @Tibetballoon
