'Uchronia' was a Belgian camp, 70 strong, that was responsible for a huge wooden sculpture of the same name out in the middle of the Burning Man playa. It is meant to refer to a point in the future when there is no time and was referred to on the street as a 'message from the future' or the 'Belgian waffle'.

The other camp was the Tea and Chai camp. Parked on the edge of the playa, it moved around the playa when it felt the desire to do so. Serving as an oasis after a long night of dancing under the stars, the Chai house was full of white flowing fabrics and soft cushions. Burlap sacks that were once filled with coffee beans lined the walls and floors, forming a consistent and neutral palette. In all, the camps highlighted in today's slide show exemplify success in bringing the comforts of home to the playa. It can be done! If you want the best camping experience possible, it might as well be in style.
