AND just when you thought that the Me­owth-styled hot air bal­loon from the Poké­mon se­ries was as far as bal­loon­ing in­ge­nu­ity would go. The In­ter­na­tional Hot Air Bal­loon Fes­ti­val saw an in­ter­est­ing it­er­a­tion this year that ought to have been flown in the night sky lit­tered with stars (and Venus, per­haps). A bal­loon ver­sion of the self-por­trait of Dutch painter Vin­cent van Gogh flew over the city of Leon on Novem­ber 17 along­side 200 other stylised bal­loons that were the brain­chil­dren from bal­loon­ists from over 23 coun­tries.
