I can't possibly email all of the (very few) people who may be curious as to my safety... but in case you care, I'm OK, I was in a restaurant when the stuff hit the fan, and we sat tight for a couple of hours (turned off the lights, shut the doors and pulled down the shutters).. then walked back to the hotel, where we stayed in on the 28th (when the entire city was shut down and you couldn't even find a taxi to take you to the border), and the situation was a bit better today although definitely not normal, and so we crossed, and are now in Amritsar, and Benazir's madness is left behind...

Yes, I'm alive and I'm safe. Thanks for caring.

You dont seem to be enclined to "get back in the rat race" yet. I am faced with a dilemma... To leave everything, and be happy in poverty and freedom... or to grasp the opportunities of getting rich and "making it"... and risking to loose my true self. Everybody seems to be eager to employ me with attractive terms. I wonder if it's because they sense that I want to run away. usually when they sense that people subconsciously try to retain you by every possible mean... They cant really explain it... it's how society goes, They dont like the nail that sticks out. Or they want what they cant have easily... either of the two. Enjoy your freedom!

the rat race
And to whoever wrote Hello, and about the rat race, I dodnt think there's anytihng ot regreat, I was thinkign the same thing whben I read this story.... so much bullshit in the world, what do we really need? food, shelter sometimes, the bare necessities. Why sowe work hard to make our companys owner richer?? that dont acomplish anything. Sure it puts food on the table, but there are other ways. Look for the bare necessities The simple bare necessities Forget about your worries and your strife I mean the bare necessities Old Mother Nature's recipes That brings the bare necessities of life
