It is one of the oldest and most successful public markets in the country.
it is the only place, where on any given saturday, you can hear 50 different languages, see 50 different shades of skin color and have young and old attend.
sure, it's got great fruits and veggies, and socks and spices and dvd's and donuts, milk, eggs and cheese, but you can get those ANYWHERE.
this is a social thing.
people actually come out of their cloistered suburbs to venture into the heart of downtown.
it's a safe zone, a free city within a city, all are welcome, nobody hassles anyone else, unless it's in a good natured ball-busting rochester kinda way.
and people talk....they tell stories, they enjoy the scenery, argue politics and religion, play chess and drink coffee.
it seems to be a great equalizer...EVERYBODY goes to the market, don't shit where you buy your peaches, duh...
i think that Larry, in his infinite wisdom may have fingered something out...
We need the Souk....we need the Sanctuary and the free flow and exchange of ideas and cultures.
all animals go to the watering hole...even godzilla

I've been to 12 Burns, but can't make this years. So this song came to me. I know its not perfect, but my friend helped me and we recorded it in about an hour in his garage. Would love it if anyone wants to adapt or re-record it. Anyway, hope you like it and hope you have a great Burn.
All roads lead
all roads meet
on a caravansary street.....
