On the 13th of January we had our first major gathering of the African crew, an orientation of the ethos of Burning Man and the Black Rock Arts foundation. It involved a collaborative community building of what turned out to be a large vessel with a man on it. This was burned, which then naturally led to a full evening of festivities!
