Burning Life 2007 - the weeklong burn has begun

As the sun set last night, the lamplighters donned the traditional robes skirted with orange, red and yellow flames, and moved across the Playa, their lamps swaying to and fro.

The time-honored procession culminated at Center Camp with a happy and boisterous party; everyone dancing to the beat of the drums. While the Second Life version of this annual event is closely aligned with the ideals of the much celebrated Real Life Burning Man, the metaverse is a platform from which a myriad of things that would not be possible in real life can take place.
