I arrived Sunday at 4am and was way too excited to set up camp, so I biked into the open playa where all the art installations were located. I found an octopus sculpture which had a couch nearby. On the couch was a box with pendants engraved with an octopi. As I was sifting through the pendants, deciding which one I wanted, a woman biked by and I waved her down. She climbed on top of the octopus, and I followed her up. We chatted for a while, and I learned she was Australian (I later learned that a lot of Austrailians go to Burning Man).
As we were chatting, the sun was starting to poke up over the mountains. Once the sun had just finished showing itself, the Austrailian and I looked at each other, and kissed. We sat in silence for a little while longer and then biked our separate ways.
