"I'm Not a Virgin Anymore": The Best Overheard Quotes From Burning Man 2013
Curious Josh / LA Weekly The Burning Man Temple
During Burning Man, Black Rock City, Nevada becomes a temporary community which comes together to host over 60,000 camping artists, DJs, rangers, volunteers and festival goers for an unrestrained, week-long celebration of culture, spirituality, art and music. With the freedom from currencies, corporate sponsors and clothing, the playa provides and endless supply of characters with plenty to say. Here's some of the best quotes we overheard while frolicking in the dust.
"I'm ready for the apocalypse,"--a girl dressed in a viking hat and a sword at the front gate while our entrance is delayed a couple of hours.
"I'm not a virgin anymore!"--yelled by one of our camp-mates as she makes playa angels on the ground once we're finally let in.
"This is not just an event it's a spiritual journey,"--someone at the temple.
