I’m still searching for a way to describe my first experience at Burning Man. But, there are simply no words. Each year, over 65,000 people gather in Black Rock Desert for Burning Man. It is a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance.
I first heard of the annual event in college and have been intrigued by the stories of the imaginative art and unique desert-dwelling subculture ever since. Now, I’m happy to say I’ll be returning for my third burn this year.
After looking back on the countless experiences and new friends I’ve made through Burning Man…
I want to share my first experience at Burning Man with you!
Burning Man is not for everyone, but could be everything to a certain person. What’s “weird” to one could be “life-changing” for another.
Quite simply put, Burning Man was my kind of weird.
To avoid misrepresenting “what” exactly Burning Man is, I’ve decided not to write about my experience. Instead, I’d like to show you. Take a peak through my perspective, from the art, to the parties and the people.
