Reminiscent of the American Burning-man festival, it's a place for the more creative to let their hair down and showcase their artwork. Of course, being able to let your hair down also brings out the bizarre in some people as can be imagined.

There's been a drought here for the last three years and, you guessed it, the rain came down in buckets on the very day James and Simone arrived and kept it up for two days. Talk about lousy timing.

One thing that is really great about these festivals is the practice of gifting, nothing sold, only given away. One young lady went around giving candy to all the children, and any adults who may have a sweet tooth. Another handing out nartjies (Tangerines) and of course there was Andy, who I've written about in previous posts here, doing screen printing on clothing.

My friend Gerald is a regular attendee at these events where he takes a keen interest in the trance parties that just go on and on forever.

Then there was the art works. So amazing how creative people can be. I consider myself to be relatively creative in certain areas, but when I look at what these people came up with, well what can I say other than, I'm humbled.

And so I will probably do another post about this at a later date. I know Andy and his wife Margie have pictures they will allow me to publish here so that is probably what is going to happen.
In the mean time, may God look on AfrikaBurn and smile at the antics of his children enjoying this life he has given them.
