LAKE LAHONTAN RETREAT AND WATER SHOW by PAULIUS MUSTEIKIS
This is exactly what was on wristbands for early arriving participants this year. Lake Lahontan Retreat and Water Show. Why? I would say it’s just Gate kids and their good sense of humor during one kind of event on planet Earth.
Burning Man’s community is rapidly getting larger every year. Media attention, nice weather, and good word on the street are doing a nice job spreading the message. Event increased in size significantly within the last few years. From 43,435 participants back in 2009 (my first year doing Burning Man photography) it went up to 69,613 in 2013.
This video from flying drone’s eye view of Burning Man 2013 shows beautiful Playa landscape from above.
I arrived Home week earlier this year to work on one of the C.O.R.E. projects called Lithuanica Birds.
This year with an early pass with its Lake Lahontan Retreat and Water Show opened opportunities to meet new people, explore and better understand Burning Man structure.
As a part of the project this year in Lake Lahontan Retreat and Water Show I learned that the amount of energy thrown out there, peoples dedication and contribution is even greater that I have imagined.
And again I’ve met my friends I see only in Playa. We did build, we partied our asses off, we found new friends, we participated, we slept in the dust, we burned everything, we learned something again…
