The truth is out there… although it isn’t as interesting as we’d hoped. After spending time at Burning Man and in Las Vegas we felt we had probably come as close as possible to encountering alien life forms. But that wasn’t going to stop us trying our luck on the Extraterrestrial Highway.
From one strange town that appeared from the dust of the Nevada desert to another. Las Vegas seemed like the obvious next stop after a week at Burning Man. At a glance they might seem similar. Both springing up out of an otherwise barren desert. Both full of bright lights and constant action, events and people, always something happening. But in reality they are two polar opposites.
At one point the explanation on the Burning Man website read that: “Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular colour looks like to someone who is blind.”. We think this pretty much sums it up, but we are still going to try.
