Burning Man pix 2

More pictures from Burning Man. Sofia Sofreaka only overlapped one day with us but she and Leo instantly became best buds:

The kids playing in Earth@Home

The kids shooting lollipops with the lollipop gun. Stuns at 20 feet. They are on the roof deck of the Armadillo, the art car that Dave and Boris (our Campmates) helped design and build for some billionaire.

Our neighbors' art car

Leo in the cupcake at night:

The cupcake at Center Camp

Another nice art car with a view

Jousting. It looked scarier and more out of control than it actually was


Boris' art piece for our camp:

Therm made a fantastic piece - moths. Some of the Therm folks were in our camp this year, too. The moths are really loud and can be played like musical instruments. They are very percussive. They shoot colored flames - green and orange and yellow and red and bits of turquoise.

Leo in some 'evil' chair.

Zap! and Leo getting zapped.

The medusa head during the day

You spin the wheel and it rotates the whole contraption which sends umbrellas through this poor guy's body.

The poor guy being speared by umbrellas.

A friend of the octopus creator, with a great matching hat:

And the octopus, made out of tons of concrete and tiles. I think they were looking for a buyer. Anyone?

The boyz on the Boar.

Leo dismounting the Boar.

Talk to God phone booth. People lined up for this. And they were on the phone for hours.

The 747 on the playa:

Inside the 747:

Leo in the cockpit

Leo getting cleared at the Insecurity Checkpoint so he can board the 747:

Skateboard park:

This guy was brilliant. He cleaned and fixed up a porta-potty and had a line of women waiting for the Lady's Room experience (far better than the normal porta-potty experience here)

We ate multi-colored gecko pancakes from these friendly folks on a daily basis. Sure beats instant oatmeal in the camper.

Paul deciding on the scenic or psycho path:

One of our favorite pieces was the Lighthouse:

This art car that sat outside the Lighthouse must have been made by the same guy. I love this art car, complete with outhouse:

Our camp mate Jacob getting painted for the day:
