Awesome Earth People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
It was a damp but pleasant day, after raining all morning. I was inside a tiny little cafe near Kyoto having a green tea. It was warm and smelled so nice. I drank it while I watched the rain outside and watched a few people walk by with purpose and umbrellas. I saw a tiny edge of light in the sky and thought things might change, so I somewhat reluctantly geared up with all my camera equipment and hiked over to this nearby bamboo forest. The sun came out and started melting all the morning rain into a foggy mist that fell down around and behind me.
I go to Burning Man every year to refresh, recharge, and get inspired by the sheer randomness and light of it all. It's the one place you go where you have no idea what you're going to see, but you know it's going to be awesome and interesting.
Burning Man, Nevada
This is perhaps the most-awesome and least-visited place in Paris. Everyone goes to the Eiffel, Arc-de-Triomph, Louvre, Orsay, etc, etc, but who would take time to visit the Museum of Evolution? Just me and other cool geeks like me. I had a hot tip from a friend that said, “If Jules Verne were to design a museum, he would make this”. Say no more, I was there immédiatement!
