The DALAI LAMA is on Miyajima! Holy crap! I found out when at an okonomiyaki place…my waiter studied Indian spirituality at Hiroshima U. and spoke great English…and made me feel stupid when he realized I didn’t know about the Dalai Lama. Still, what a cool thing, to be in the same place as him.
I had another “yes, I understand you talking about me” moment. (Hi, Ethan!)
On the tram now…a guy just leaned over to stare at this message, nodded, then got up and changed seats. Weird.
