Playa People.... the Burners

Well today marks the 2 week countdown until my departure for the Burn...... of things still to be done, lots of lists all over the house and tons of packing and organizing to be done..... WHEW!

TWO WEEKS! WOW!!! Time is running out!


I thought I would take this time to introduce you to the people of the playa..... the people that I will be hanging with for a week..... the community that I will be a part of.....the citizens of Black Rock City..... Enjoy!

All pictures pirated are from the Burning Man website......


Burning Man Founder
Larry Harvey

Many weddings, ceremonies and events
take place on the playa

The costumes vary in style
every day....

Dancing is a minute to minute occurance

One of my favorite pics

Last years theme was
"Green Man"
Here we have the "Tree Man"

Riding thru a dust storm

Green Lady


Face masks and eye gear
are a MUST on the playa

You just never know
what you will see next


Nightly the torch lighters come to the playa
and light the torches that light
the "center" road to the Man

Exotic and unusual is an understatement

The "Key" man....



The Playa People are "lit" up at night

Preparing for the burning of the Man

Its 3:30 am and I am finally off to bed.......

Happy Friday all.......

Hugs,
Minxie

Hey Minx! Sad news love....I can't go to the Brother concert tonight :( I'm still pretty sick, and we are going to have some t-storms over the next few hours....so I thought it best to stay home and take it easy since I have to work tomorrow. Plus I couldn't get anyone to go with me.....guess I must smell or something LOL....then again...maybe they don't want to come down with the "sickness"

Talk to you soon!
