Happy birthday. I spent my birthday in Delhi last year too. I think it was last year. If not it was the year before. I have to check to my journal.

Today is supposed to have a high of 43. I think Cara is either in Varanasi with a side trip to Sarnath. Buddha gave his first Sermon in Sarnath. It’s close to Varanasi. But it is in Bihar’s Savanah. I will be 45-47 there today.

The area Buddha was in Bihar, India – for the most part. I have been to all the places where he hung on to. Bihar is nothing but scrub land. His place of birth and death are in Nepal. I have been to both.

Last night I watched all the documentaries about Operation Blue Star. Its about the terrorist who took over the Golden Temple and laid siege for many days.

I ordered Hanuman’s _____________ made in 22K gold today. Today’s price for 24K God in India is Rs.30,000/- for 10 gram. CAN $ 600.00. They couldn’t make it in 24K so I am having it made in 22K. The only jewellery I have seen made in 24K were the chains Susan and I bought in Cambodia. At that tie bought a 35 gram chain in 23K that cost me USD $ 300. I think the year was 2000 or 2001. Should have invested n gold back then.

If I ever run into a large amount of funds, I will invest half of it with Berkshire Hathaway. I wouldn’t buy until Buffet passes. Everything wil drop for a bit. I have not checked the share price for a few years but the last time, I think the price was USD$ 110,000.00 per share. Birkshire’s 10 year average is 19-20 percent. If ever run into this kind of money, unlikely, I will do the research. Until Then I have to get used to what I am getting.

I see some people in Canada who think they have money. I know these guys a very wealthy. Not that I am wealthy but I know very well that my net per year is more than theirs. I am not writing bad about their acumen. What I am saying is that just because you think you may have it, don’t think that another has less because I don’t invest with you. This sounds arrogant. It is supposed to.

We are very fortunate to have Mark as our president. He affords us a lot of freedom.

At his last position, he was promised a lot more freedom than he is given with us. He never received it. With us, he makes 80% of the critical discussions. There is a level of trust that must be recognised when one gives free reign, financially and operation wise. We have 110 employees +/- and 23 locations plus an online division. To give this type of trust and respect doesn’t come easy. He has earned it.

I know some great business people who could be so much more if they would just trust others.

Most single digit employers are one unit – may be two unit employers. Trust is a must. Most of these employers think that all their employees are going to work as hard as themselves.

If someone wants this type of dedication of their employees they cannot ever expect this occur with the first few employees under themselves. It’s a tough do.

This fucking heat, I would be so bad if I was “travelling”. I would be used to it by not. Well may be not this type of heat but 38-40. I find that with extreme heat there is a fine lime between hot and too hot. In Canada, I find there is little difference between -30 and -40 With heat, the difference between 35 and 45 is a killer.

Everyone is going to want to spend time with me today. I am an introvert with anyone asks me to do something. If I am put into a situation I am an extrovert. I always want to things on my terms/timings..

I thought she was going to cry. Both the guys held my journey in reverence. Utter 100% reverence. It was touching. I am going to have to stop telling about my story but it always comes through in conversation.

I am getting sick of Cara and that fucking room. No so much Cara but the fucking room.

They were astounded of my Indian travels. I spoke not of Japan, Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Laos Thailand, Burma, all Europe, Peru nor the Middle East; we spoke of my voyage to SA.

I have an idea what those think that know of me. If I heard my story I would think of Marco Polo. In fact, he is the traveller I respect the most. It is arrogant painting myself with HIS brush. I wrote it, posted it but more over --- I have seen it.

Am I a traveller or witnesses? Are they the same? Surely, a witness of events as they unfold. Not as they happen but as I see it happen, in that instance, that date and that year. I am a reporter of my thoughts. I feel sick.
