Playa del Fuego was fabulous! I think most of you would absolutely love it, although a few of you might be put off by all the naked hippies. But really, every variety of freak and eccentric was in evidence, and it just felt so great! I told E that it was pleasantly disorienting to see those little indicators (freak-shade hair color, tattoos, piercings, etc.) that mean "I must know that person" at every turn. It was like being with a thousand of my closest friends.

Among the highlights was the naked slip-and-slide. I've never seen so many happy, naked people before, and the dramatic variety of shapes and colors of humanity was incredibly beautiful. During the actual burn itself, I got to be a part of the drumming orchestra that accompanied the dancing. Overall, it was a really wonderful experience.

I must thank cyntergomes for all her infrastructure work. The twelve foot pretzel tent that functioned as chill space, and the frikkin' shower she built for the camp were amazing. Also, she was kind enough to let us roll out early to avoid the rush, which meant she got left with the final clean up, for which I am grateful and somewhat remorseful. I owe you, hon!

It makes me very happy that you got to do this! Please do it again. :)

(I got to spend a week at Burning Man in 2004, and I loved it. Haven't been back because of baby manufacturing, but I imagine that PDF is actually more fun because it's less huge - more than 49,000 people went to Burning Man in 2008...which was crazy. The effect of having 10,000 or 15,000 freaks building a city in the desert in 3 days was amazing, but then there were all these other people who descended and were kind of annoying. I kept wanting them to go away so I could help building more things. :).

We will certainly do it again! I'm happy to report that even E loved it and wants to go back. I think small, regional burns are more our speed than Burning Man. I'm really glad you got to go before it got really out-of-control huge.
