Have you been to Thailand? Or were, but already miss him and his beautiful holidays? Then you had to be at Borisov Ponds in Moscow last night. At 22:40 there was a flash mob on the launch of sky lanterns. And the action was successful, I tell you.
As it passes in Thailand, I already wrote - Loy Kratong Festival and Yi Peng Festival, or New Year in Thailand. Of course, in the land of smiles lanterns are launchedthousands of pieces, and not only on official holidays, but just for birthdays. Initially, I did not quite understand what the buzz was, but when I myself launched a flashlight a couple of times, it dawned on me that this was some kind of immersion into childhood and getting joy from nothing.
So, yesterday in Moscow, despite the pastrain and overcast skies, about 200 people gathered, and it’s great that the bad weather had no effect on people. Somewhere at 22 o'clock the people began to pile up on the bank of the pond, talked and waited for the spectacle. Most of all I was pleased with the absence of drunk or drunk people. Indeed, why, when, and so fun.
At 22:20 sky lanterns began to unfold, read instructions, write their desires on them and, of course, be photographed against their background. If in Thailand, the lanterns are ordinary cylindrical and white, then there is a greater variety: drawings, emoticons, shapes in the form of hearts and domes.
At 22.38 the first lights appeared, and the first soaring constructions. Many did it for the first time, so someone wondered why the flashlight does not take off, someone burned it at the very beginning ...
At 22.40 the enchanting action began. Hundreds of luminous multicolored dots soared to shouts and hooting soared into the sky. Very beautiful! Especially in the dark. All this lasted about 10 minutes, new lanterns went up, and old ones disappeared over the horizon. And someone even brought with them fireworks ...
P.S. I noticed that the Russian lanterns are not quite suitable fuel cell, it burns much less time, although for cold air it should be the other way around. As a result, the lanterns did not fly very far. In Tae, they flew out of the city, and climbed hundreds of meters.
