Guatemala

I love Antigua - I spent a couple months in Central America after the burn in 2002. My favourite place to go there, hmm - I think it had Rainbow in the name, was a little cafe with a bookshop next door. It had good vegetarian food.

synchronicity

It's 2003, Thursday before the burn begins, and I am getting onto a plane in Sydney Australia to fly into San Francisco (I am sick, and quite cranky). Some time during the flight I am waiting with a few other people for the bathroom. I am standing behind a woman who has amazing tattoos that I can se...

Met in 2002, had all the same doubts and wonderings. We live at opposite ends of the earth. But in January next year, he's moving here - finally :)

I called a couple of times, but unfortunately, all I got was voicemail.

But still - this was an awesome idea - a tiny round of applause in my dark computer room for those who put it together :)

(1) You can leave a message for him on playainfo, and *hope* he is checking it. *note* the site has been up and down all week. http://www.playainfo.org/dir2004/ (2) If your need is of a genuine emergency nature.

Sunshine, there are 30 000+ people on the playa - the chances of anyone even finding him to give a message are remote. You could try leaving a message on playainfo for him, but there is no guarantee he'll see it. http://www.playainfo.org/dir2004/ I suggest relax - he'll be back in touch in a couple ...

No problem - its hard to know what to expect and what access (and other things) might be like if you haven't been before/yourself.

But brace yourself for enchanting ravings when she comes home!

There isn't easy web access on the playa as far as I know - but there is a wireless network so that those who have wireless laptops etc can use the network. She might not have been able to find someone/someplace to get internet access I spoke to my boy on Sunday, but not since then - it seems the ne...

When the man burns I think I'll be planting things in my garden (it'll be Sunday afternoon here at the underside of the world) - growing new things. I'll also be putting the finishing touches on a...

Maybe I just plan and pack well, but I took about 5 or 6 costumes which I wore during the week with me. I also had to have stuff for a couple days in SF, plus all the essentials like first aid, sunscreen, all that stuff, though you can buy a lot of that when you arrive, especially if you are happy n...

Dingo - I notice you're a local :) There are at least a few other Brisbane-ites I know that go, and a few more planning the trip next year. This year was my second burn. Logistically, I take pretty much everything I need with me already minus last minute things and food - and fly out to SF where I h...

I was lucky enough to be invited to the BBQ out at moonbase after bumping into a camp member out on the playa who had actually been on my flight over.

The day before I left for the playa (a 14 hour flight to SF) I started to get quite sick. By the time I made it to SF, and then hit the road the next day, I was not just sick but incredibly cranky. I arrived Sunday afternoon, and by Monday was still sick. I was thinking about going home. A wonderful...

so many Aussies but no posts?

:P

I always knew there were at least a few of us out there, but this year I managed to run into a camp of about 15-20 in my travels - its always nice to meet other wandering Aussies on the playa.
