My incredible experience at Burning Man this year. I lost over half the footage from my hard drive getting damaged because of dust storms, but I still had enough to piece together this documentary! Enjoy!!

If you want to see this in Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Irish and/or Esperanto – or if you’d like to see more of my videos – be sure to check out my videoblog at
