Burning Man-- An Interesting Event Of Black Rock City, Nevada, USA

The official site for Burning Man describes the event as "a city in the desert dedicated to radical self-reliance, radical self-expression and art". Even this description can not do Burning Man justice, however, there is just too much going on. Nearly 50,000 people swarm to the middle of Nevada, and build temporary city that they call Black Rock City. Those who attend are simply expected to contribute whatever they can do to the Burning Man Community. The name gets its roots from the giant wooden effigy that is ritually burnt every year (As seen above). There is also a temple that is constructed and burnt every year since 2000. Artists construct very huge art pieces all over Black Rock City and music is always being played by musicians. Nudity and psychedelic drugs are very prevalent and more and more.
