This is becoming a trip of many first, not the last of which is loading photos enroute.

While its not the "whoah  baby I ain't never done nothing like that before" experience of the now infamous Ike of Ike and Tina Turner fame, it does have its challenges, as practically everything practical that one does, especially in India.

There is the general issue of just having virtually no time on this tour, which thus far is a business trip with days that start at breakfast and end with after dinner drinks with way too much just sitting and eating. The fact that this is a netbook, of couple of years' vintage, quite sufficient for email, but given its relatively slow processing speed, low resolution screen, combined with photos of giga bites of megapixels, slow wireless networks etc. and the fact that all of the items mentioned above, including uploading to the site are basically firsts for me, leads to want to consign all of the above to the new heading of paperweights.

So, below is a weblink, to some of the photos so far, unedited and without captions...surely they will improve, certainly by the time we return in spring time in Toronto?

As always, your comments and feedback add energy to my efforts

Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi

The Journey

Come, seek, for search is the foundation of fortune:
every success depends upon focusing the heart.
Unconcerned with the business of the world,
keep saying with all your soul, "Ku, ku," like the dove.
Consider this well, o you whom worldliness veils,
God has tied "invocation" to "I will answer."
When weakness is cleared from your heart,
your prayer will reach the glorious Lord.

Hi Andrew
Wow, I had no idea that Gandhi wrote to Hitler. Imagine if he had paid attention to the letter or engaged in dialogue. This must be interesting for you to travel a country you have already seen but not from the lives of the privileged. It must be quite a culture shock?
