Hola, this Aussie is no longer a virgin Burner
... ive just returned from BurningMan in Nevada & B.C Canada after 6 weeks of solid partying...turned out to be the best holiday of my life, in which i met so many cool Candians and Americans along the way...There is no doubt BM has changed my life foerever. Never before have i seen 40000 likeminded artists come together to create what can only be described as the greatest party on Earth. The sense of community & sharing there has made me look at life in such a different way & while critics of BM have described the mind-altering hapenings as a hedonistic playground of drugs & sex, I have been inspired more than ever to imagine & create
& of course our theme camp was aptly named "Area-51 outpost"
Still suferring from reality bends its time now to reintergrate myself into Sydney lifestyle in which i count down the days till BM2007
I will now leave you a few BM terms that shall appear now & then in future journals
