The final day of our short time with these strange and wonderful desert people. We were treated with such warmth. We spent good times with various tribes within the larger gathering. On one side, there were laughing children dancing with their elders celebrating together in the laser-illuminated dust.
On the other, almost-nude women adorned in beads and feathers feeding watermelon to their men with bare hands in the hot sun. It’s certainly a place of magic and wonderment.
In between? The “Security” clan. They ran in packs and acted a bit flustery and arrogant, waving their “loud sticks” and trying their best to intimidate. But it only took a few run-ins with that sect before we learned there simple ways, and avoided them completely.
In conclusion, the Culture was rich with idiosyncrasies and individualistic twists. I was impressed by the sense of unity within so many clans, clicks, tribes, and families. The visual stimulations were impressive. The men were kind, the women were gorgeous, and the children full of pure laughter.
WATCHxWITNESS would like to extend a warm, extremely long, almost-uncomfortable hug to ALL those who took care of us in every which way out there. You know who you are, and we love you all for it. See you next year friendo.
