Quand les Américains font un festival à la gloire de la montgolfière, il ne font pas semblant : Albuquerque accueille chaque année des milliers de passionnés et peut se targuer d'être le plus grande "mongolfiade" de la planète. Au programme, un concours de beauté pour élire le ballon le plus con dans lequel on va mettre de l'air chaud et un lancer massif de montgolfières dans le ciel du Nouveau Mexique. Dans les deux cas, ça fait de belles images :
