top.gifWell if anyone has seen, heard or better yet been to a burningman festival, this piece of news should be very exciting.

Following very closely in the footsteps of our crusty US counterparts, South Africa is getting it’s own burning man extravaganza together. Afrikaburns

africaburns.jpgFor those that have not heard, burningman is an annual week long event celebrating radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance. It takes its name from the ritual burning a large wooden sculpture of a man on the sixth day.
