Since no cash exchanges should be made at the event, gifting is encouraged. There is a trading system where people will do something and in exchange, receive a ‘gift’ of the same value. Originally, at the very start of Burning Man, Gifting was when burners exchanged favors. Although that is still true, these gifts have become more physical throughout the years. Trading is one way, but there are plenty of burners giving out gifts and don’t expect anything in return!
This sculpture is one of my favorites! It looks like a mixture of a hot air balloon and the house from Up. im not sure if I love this picture so much because of the balloons on top, or because of how beautiful the coloring looks with the clear skies.
