Got my BM ticket, flying in to SFO on the 18th from Geneva, Switzerland. So goddamn excited, I can hardly contain myself!!!!!!!!
Yes, I'm a birgin.
I thought it would be a good idea to meet other international burners that are in San Fran a few days prior to the event, to share tips and resources for the Burn, make new friends, chat and have a laugh. It can be a bit daunting and disorienting to fly into an unknown city, and have to prepare for 8 days in the desert in a limited time-span. Here's the occasion for us "fish out of water" to pool our knowledge and resources and be more efficient during the few days that lead up to the Burn.
-sharing last minute info about where to find what
-sharing knowledge about the burn
-sharing other resources
So I'm organising a little get-together on the 22nd of August evening(tentatively)
, in a bar or restaurant (yet to be determined) in San Francisco
Send me a PM if you'd like to come for the "International Burner Meet & Greet"
! Like that I can keep you up to date about the location and time of the event. Suggestions for venues are welcome. I deliberately chose a date closer to the event (as most international burners will be flying in just a few days before), but if it turns out that many of us are actually in SF earlier than just a few days (say a week), I would consider pre-poning the meet & greet to give us more time to prepare. So please include your date of arrival in SF in your PM
Needless to say, everyone is welcome
! In fact it would be delightful if some of the local Burning Man veterans could drop in to impart us with some seasoned knowledge (though we all know they are very busy this time of the year...).
Hope many of you come forward!
'And it burns, burns, burns, the Burning Man...'
One day, we will never have to say goodbye, only good night.
