A hot-air balloon plays hide and seek above the rooftops of Segovia. At one point it gets a little too close to the roofs and rooftop terraces of the old buildings in the city’s historic quarters. It eventually rises higher and floats away. Flying in a balloon, rising above the city and looking down over the old quarter, what a wonderful temptation… In the absence of artefacts, however, we have to rely on our spirits to lift us into the clouds.
