Well, sort of...wi fi and phone access are intermittent...and not just for the community: accounting needed to submit payroll over the internet and couldn't get their on Playa connection to stay up. But Cameragirl and her IT staff worked some magic and got it working again.
Night time at BMan is spectacular. All over the open (non-camping) section of the desert are art installations and flame effect shows. Art cars rome the playa carrying dancers, drinkers and cruisers from large art piece to another. There's a 4 story slide you can ride and the underside is for bungee airialists to perform or play. The temple that wll burn on Sunday is a beautiful lace-like wood structure and The Man sits on a base that looks like a Gaudi structure made with 2x4s. Pictures will come later.

The weather is tough: hot, dusty, windy, dust storms...then not so bad...a cool morning..last night's (Wed) cool, clear perfection. I escape the worst afternoon heat + sometimes dust storms in air conditioned RV comfort. (Thanks, BMan for the electricity and letting me camp with the staff.

Still there is dust everywhere...it's like talcum powder and is all over the RV interior as our shoes, clothe and hats drag it in. Yet, you get used to it... and a large supply of baby wipes helps.

Off to see a singer at Center Camp....later.Well, sort of...wi fi and phone access are intermittent...and not just for the community: accounting needed to submit payroll over the internet and couldn't get their on Playa connection to stay up.
