Burning Man Day 5 Friday.... Critical Tits Day

Ok, Sorry, I have been pretty sick this week so I havent had a chance to update the blog.... so here we go onto Friday, Day 5.

WARNING:
NUDITY CAN AND WILL HAPPEN ON THIS DAY!!!


Friday started off like most every other day on the playa, with coffee and breakfast.... but since our time on the playa was running short, we decided to get an early start on the day by going to Center Cafe for our morning Chai Tea latte and to replenish our ice stock.....

We thought it would be fun to have some fun with our Chai.... and fulfill some of our "fantasies"......

Magic was adored by two blue men!


And I was worshipped by one of my own... :)

When we suddenly saw a strange animal.....

If you look closely, it is two humans as the legs....
what a great costume!!!


Center Cafe is always got something going on
Here a man was doing henna Tattoos on women...
They were truly works of art....

So here is my artistic pic.....


After an exciting morning at the Cafe.... we went back to camp just to hang out and do much of nothing...... when all of sudden we realized that almost the entire day had slipped away from us..... we rushed to get ourselves ready for the famous "Critical Tits" parade.

This parade is for women only and is to signify that we as women should be allowed to go topless/shirtless just like men are able to do. It is a parade of protest so to speak....thousands of women on bikes ride from the Man to the Esplanade and then to the after hours party.... Of course, thousands of topless women on bikes will no doubt bring HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of men to "see" the parade. The men line the parade route at times squeezing us down to only two bike width so they can "encourage" and "support" our protest! LMAO! Yeah ok! We all know they just want to see topless women! LOL....

AGAIN A WARNING:
THERE WILL BE TOPLESS WOMEN IN THE NEXT FEW PICS!!!

Magic and I at the start of the parade!
Yes, I cropped it!

At first it is a little bit of an unorganized mess....

But then things get moving....
when I get the videos up, you will see the
line of men on the parade route....

And of course, no parade would
be complete without a float!
or Pirate ship....


The women riding from the Man to the Esplanade


Yes, there were more than what you see here!

Magic and I got separated, so a kind "Fireman"
offered to take my pic....


Yes, cropped again!


Since Magic and I got separated, I decided to head back to camp and hang out.... on my I got a chance to get some more pics....

And my "cheese head" friends we well
represented on the Playa!
But I think they missed the parade.

I was afraid to ask what this was all about.


A view of the Man and the dust
created from the parade

These two were fun on the wings....

And I was able to get my pic taken again...
Yes, I added the "hearts" ;)

Art Installation
Origami on the Playa

A view of the playa

I met some interesting people on my way back to camp

And they were more than willing to have
their pics taken with me. ;)

And once again, I was able to watch
the robot move! It was cool!


Once Magic made it back to camp, we exchanged stories. She was able to make it to the after parade party that was PACKED! I am glad that she was able to do that, she needed some fun. We ate dinner, drank a few beers and then as the sun went down... we got ready for a Friday night on the playa.....

The lights on my basket on my bike...

This was one of our neighbors...
He designed and built it...

It reminds me of the Sidney Opera House
Dont you think?

On our way the playa
Once again the winds started to blow...
but not too hard

This is the "lamp lighters" camp.... one day I will
be on the playa when they come out to light
the laterns that light up the playa..


Off to Center Cafe we went.....

And ran into a faire friend, Damon
He is always dressed in such wonderful costumes!
And his body is INCREDIBLE!
RRRRAAAAARRRRRR!


Center Cafe at night....
Jumping with life!

They had a place to make your own mutant vehicle
and put it on their streets...
most of the art on the playa is interactive!

Can you guess who's vehicle this is?

Then who's would this be?

And of course, it would not be
complete without the Man

The "Wo"Man! LOL

There was some great art pieces
in the Cafe... I loved these


Also, in the Cafe, there was a "dream" room
inside was a huge canvas that had been painted.
There were little sayings etc.... and there was
a book to write your own poems, dreams, art etc.

It was very peaceful and wonderful...

And one of my favorite places to hang out...

Once again, playa time had gotten away from us.... it was after midnight before we knew it. We headed back to camp... honestly, I was pretty worn out from the week. On our way back.... I got some more interesting pics....

The "Iron" Horse....
It was amazing!

A group of bikes with glow sticks or
"blinkies" as Magic calls them.

The "Spank" Club....

And of course more Pirates....
Peace and Pirates
who could ask for more!


So this ends Day 5 on the playa.... I hope you enjoyed it...... I will get the next day up within a few days..... it will be the DAY OF THE BURN!!!!

Love and Light....
