So. I survived Burning Man and I actually had fun! There was one semi-depressing moment where I felt like I really didn't fit in (I don't think I have a freak flag to let fly...more like a freak post-it), but that passed and I was able to enjoy my time in the desert. I'm planning on writing more about the whole experience later, but right now, I'm trying to get over a cold that descended a couple days after I got back. Thanks, immune system.
For now (and for those of you who haven't seen them yet), photos are here.
