13 Reasons Albuquerque is the Greatest City in the World

Not a bad article, but this part especially caught my attention, as it is 100% true:

Go anywhere else in the country, meet another person from Albuquerque, and you will find that you have no more than one degree of separation from this random stranger. Seriously. It’s pretty cool.

Time for you lil shits to learn one of my pet peeves.


So it’s that time of year again, you know, when you start seeing pretty pictures like this;

And that’s great, I love the photos, cos come on

How cool is that shit? But you wanna know what really pisses me off? People that caption these photos like “The worlds largest balloon gathering in Chambley, France.” NO. YOU’RE WRONG. It takes place in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. How do I know? What makes me the expert? IT’S WHERE I FUCKING LIVE, AND HAVE LIVED MY WHOLE FUCKING LIFE. 

you thought I was kidding? 

So sourcing this photo “Hot air balloons flying over the Rhine river, Germany” is not okay. Seriously, that is the Rio Grande river, you can tell by the lack of deep water.

So by all means, reblog and like posts with photos of hot air balloons, tis the season, but please recognize that it is more than likely not giving credit to the real location of the photo.

Also, as a disclaimer; I know other places do have ballooning events, but most of the photos on the internet of hot air balloons are in fact from Baloon Fiesta in ABQ. 

Finally, if you ever get the chance, I highly suggest going to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, you’ll never see anything like it anywhere else. 

Thank you for letting me rant. Please have a few more pictures for your enjoyment.

(The haunted house balloon is my favourite) ^
