We had just taken a hot air balloon ride over a small town whose main industry was tequila production. On the flight there had been my boyfriend and I, the pilot and another couple. Half way through the flight I looked over to much see the girl gushing hysterically. I turn to my boyfriend, "Oh god, I think he just proposed." Though at first he didn't believe me, we soon saw a ring - a ridiculously large ring that I didn't understand how she was supposed to wear. This ring turned out to be a fake, simply for posing for photos. Then there was the phone call from the balloon to the shocked family - "He gave me a ring!... An engagement ring, Dad..."
On the other side of the basket, we continued to enjoy the flight, with the occasional snicker towards the couple - why wouldn't he have booked a private flight? What if she had have said 'no'? That would have been an awkward trip for everyone. We landed in a field, a little off course and the workers took the balloon back over to the proper landing site, one hanging from the low-flying basket as it went. We followed the balloon and watched as it was deflated, while being watched by some local kids in the field.
