Burning Man: the best experience ever!

Burning Man is an annual event in western United States of America, in Black Rock City. The late summer event is described as an experiment in community and art.

First Burning Man was 32 years ago in 1986 on Baker Beach in San Francisco as a small function organized by Larry Harvey and Jerry James, who built the first “Man”, it has since been held annually. (source: Wikipedia)

The most common means of transportation is the bicycle, converted into a work of art.

Any clothes and any kind of corporal expression is permitted.

My experience: Burning Man is an experience that is very difficult understand without living it. It is not easy to explain, even to show in pictures because all you experience is mostly related to feelings and emotions.

It is crazy for many people to think you can build a city in the middle of the desert, without water or electricity, where 70,000 people will live for 9 days. The most important principle is “Leave no trace.”

Burning Man is not a festival, a concert or a holiday spot. To go there can be the best or worst experience of life.

The most important is to leave any prejudice at home and just relax and enjoy it.

People become what they want to be and everyone accepts others, everyone smiles, hugs and gives. There are not any judgments. How would the world be if we were all like that? Willing to do something every day that would be unforgettable for us and for others.
