We had just experienced floating effortlessly over Luxor in Egypt. As we approached our landing site in the desert I spotted the boys on the donkey tracking us.
We landed with hardly a bump. We alighted from the basket and danced and sang with the crew.
Then the boys with donkey approached me, hands extended, smiling
‘Bakshish!’ they asked.
I have no idea how they saw me from the ground at that distance but they knew I had photographed them.
I gave them each an Egyptian pound.
