#1: Burning Man – Blackrock Desert, Nevada USA

Some eight days before the American Labor Day in September, thousands of people head down to Blackrock Desert to burn a gigantic wooden man.  But make no mistake. This isn’t just some burning ritual you got there – what do you suppose partygoers do in those eight days?  Just recently, some 47,000 came to barter and trade as only ice and water may be bought with money there.
