Burning Man - pictures from last few days
Leo in his cupcake watching some stiltwalkers on the playa. Here's a video of the stilts and cupcake party:
Stairs to nowhere
Burning Man's version of Santa Monica's Muscle Beach has very high hammocks to swing in while watching the trapeze artists
The Da Vinci tank at night. Leo got to run the remote controls. They were very sophisticated- you could control each jet of fire individually or hit the all jets at once button or hit the each jet in a row button.
Leo the Snufflupagus
We loved this Glowscilloscope. Controls of frequency and amplitude on the right. Results from the UV laser trace on the left.
This is Thunderdome! From Mad Max. This particular fight was a father-son fight. They hang in bungees and attack each other with foam-covered bats. Here's the video:
Leo loves his cupcake! Other kids did too! People chased him around the playa wanting to eat him.

Virus. You spun the cube and the gears all spun as well. We watched this burn.
So it said Phish was playing. I left my job (making French fries) to Paul and Leo and biiked over to see. Of course it was a cover band. And they made me wince a lot. The first weird thing was that there was a packed audience but no dancers. Not sure what the point of that is. The second weird thing was my camp mate who went and swore up and down that she'd seen phish before and that this really was them.
the cupcake gathering
One of the cupcake guys had a birthday so we celebrated by baking a giant cupcake. They had to bake a dozen chocolate sheet cakes and cover in frosting.
Here's the actual birthday party on the playa. Free cupcake for everyone. The cupcake is a little hard to see but it is in the center of the picture.
Have to have a fire hydrant if you're going to burn anything ;-)
This was the candy store. And Leo looked like a kid in it.
At camp, we burn our trash in this burn barrel. We get the barrel started with this flamethrower.
Leo right after a shower.
You could ride this teacup art car. They had five teacups pulled by a truck.
The TV art car
the man - the gears never worked
El Pulpo Mecanico. Best flaming art car ever.
Jean and Leo
A fun tightrope
Leo and Paul riding a cool trike. It's made from three unicycles. The middle wheel spins freely and there is a strobe light that syncs up to it.
