231--Nevada: Burning Man, Your Brain on the Playa
@ Where`s Cherie?     Sep 07 2004 - 10:41 PST
cherie writes: When you come to Burning Man, the greeters say: "Welcome Home."

Two hours from Reno, is a desert city where everyone is welcome. It is a environment where outrageous self-expression is prized; a place you can't buy, sell or advertise anything. (*Exception--you can buy ice and coffee.)

This year roaming through Black Rock City were 500 "Mutant Vehicles", or mobile works of art. Most citizens of BRC ride their bikes or walk, but for the few who are able to create a moving vehicle that makes one stand in awe--those few are licensed to drive about the playa.

Join me and watch the wild Burning Man cars, wonderful playa art and the inspirational people who become works of art themselves.
