Time for some fun


Yesterday evening everybody was still in the mood for some jokes and fun.

Relaxed the gasballoon pilots watched their hotair collegues at work, and event manager Mathijs even accepted an offer to make a flight.

Some time later he was seen to be racing around on an old bike.

Philippe couldn't resist and followed his example, although he chose not to drive as fast as Mathijs. It would have been a real disaster if he had broken an arm or a leg at this important moment.

During the welcome party everybody was allowed to drink alcohol, but now they all prefer to say completely sober as it is getting serious.

We guess everybody went to bed early yesterday because today is the day for which they have denied themselves so many things, for which they have really suffered sometimes.
