The Lost City of Atlantis project proved no exception to the rule - in fact, organizers acquired an extra room (the notorious "101" just for that purpose - and I took it upon myself to document the ones that I participated in:

The Tattoo Party

The Press Party

The Irish Pub Party

The Balloon Hat (Birthday) Party

The Padres Party

The On-Going Party

Staying at the budget Inn with about a hundred other sand sculptors from all over the world is a lot like being in a college dormatory. These are pictures from my first night in town... as usual there was a party in Joe Maize's room.
