Since we're going to have to try flying our balloon
in the early morning - to avoid the winds that pick
up from about 8.00 am - we have to finish it today,
to fly it tomorrow morning.
So we cut plastic, lay it on the ground and stuck it
together. A lot of cutting, scrambling around on the
floor, and sticking. Got covered in dirt. Covered everyone
in dirt. Stick here, cut there. Finally, we manage to
stick it all together and ... disaster. We stuck it
together wrongly and it wasn't a sphere - it was a crazy
thing with ears.
Cut it to bits and began again. More dirt, more sweat,
more sticky tape ... it took hours.
And what do you know? We messed it up AGAIN! Just astonishing.
Not enough time to do it again, and it was slightly
better than before, so we decided to live with it (no
choice really!). Ridiculous!
