In November Tashi made her first trip to Latin America taking part in The Leon International Balloon Fiesta held in Leon, Mexico.
The Fiesta was based at the beautiful Parque Metropolitano on the edge of the city. Tashi joined 200 other balloons flying over the park lake, including her first dip in to water and drifting slowly over the surrounding countryside.
Amongst the 500,000 people who came out at dawn to see the balloons fly were Tibetan supporters from the local Mexican support groups, we were very pleased to see the Tibetan flags in the crowd and to meet them. We would like to thank our friends at Tíbet Mx Querétaro and Tibet Mx Puebla for all their help and support during our Mexico visit.
Tashi is now on her way back to Europe where she will be prepared for her 2017 flying season.
