sweet dreams little lady.

Agnes, good grief, I'm hyperventilating (where's that paper bag?). Not only is this post wonderful, but I've now got to wait for the Dalai Lama post.

The Dalai Lama! OMG, I'm so jealous! How very un-Buddhist of me. I'm looking forward to more details. You mentioned meeting him "again", so I'm wondering about the first time.

Sweet! Awaiting details... There was talk in Montana of his coming to a big gig there this summer. I'm interested to know what he's up to, and what you're up to, too! I know you're going to sleep. Need a wake-up call to get onto the next post?

I think it's so amazing that you were able to meet the Dalai Lama, what an experience!

I am really glad to hear that you loved Iowa! I wish you could have seen more and I told you the people were very friendly. Growing up there I always had the best time and now living in Houston I don't take for granted the kind people I grew up with in Iowa, Houston isn't near as kind!!!

I love the farm life, my husband and I really enjoyed our time there and I could see us ending up back there eventually!

Truly unbelievable. Should this trip ever happen again, I will happily meet you for coffee in Chicago (my hometown) or Des Moines (home to my alma mater). Not that that can hold a candle to the experience you've already had, of course. Eager to hear more....

Dang! lol... did u have a chance to eat and shower??

Wow! Dalai Lama?! Isn't that nice?! :)
Good to have you back, Agnes :).
Now, go rest!

Wow - that's a frenzied couple of days! I love, LOVE, the photo of the pink sky :)

Enjoy some sleep!

You truly are a VIP! I can't say i'm a huge fan of the dalai lama for many reasons, but this should be an interesting experience anyway.

Great airports pictures... you captured the feeling of the place!

Movie - That is what I thought while watching the very first photograph.

Read your comment i.e., excellent to continue the journey.
Re.: You always post the best photos Hobo :-)))

I e.mailed you but no-reply so I am posting reply below:
I say: Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou.
I am learning And trying the best. The more I capture The more I learn. Yes, Improving a lot I can say about self And a wish/dream is to direct a movie(without experience/knowledge) one day. More photographs coming soon...Again will say I had a smile And smiling right now when you said:
You always post the best photos Hobo :-)))
Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou

I love the photos, Agnes! :) And meeting Dalai Lama, surely, would have been a lifetime experience! ;)

Super...a once in a lifetime experience-twice!

Oh my WORD Agnes! How wonderful!!! Pleasant dreams now ... can't wait to hear more.

Wow! You met the Dalai Lama, simply amazing !

I always mean to go hear him speak when he's in Vancouver. I should really get off my ass.

Hi Agnes, I am new to your site. Every journey is a pilgrimage, since it offers immense possibilities to confront something in you, which you have never thought of or never known. This confrontation brings the wisdom, which any one can hardly speak of. Keep traveling.God bless.

Lovely photos!

P.S. Been ages since you were on my blog :(

My! You have been v busy! Thanks for keeping a record, I loved seeing the photos. Now ... have a BIG sleep and lots of rest! :)

That is living by the seat of your pants!
Fun photos.

I feel sensibility here!
Have a nice weekend!

I'm starting to feel a bit recovered after that trip. Four cities in 72 hours. Beautiful countryside, lovely, warm people, and a reminder of hotel life. Never thought the spirituality of the Tibetan plateau would match the spirituality of the American midwest but I was wrong. Compassion and caring are the same no matter the place and being in that time and in that place was special. It reminded me again, not that I needed reminding, of how very much good there is in humanity despite the occasional indications to the contrary.

i really envy ur life!!!

i wish i could roam around the world :P

Sweet dreams, Agnes.

Beautiful post Agnes! I totally can't wait to see your post about the Dalai Lama. How very exciting! Your photos are beautiful as always!

Globe hopping is fun!

The Dalai Lama?! WOW how exciting! Can't wait to hear more!

WoW! That sounds like a great trip! I admire your stamina and energy.

I am speechless, you are meeting the Dalai Lama - that is just too extraordinary for words. This sounds, even though is must be infinitely tiring and stressful, like an utterly, utterly wonderful trip, you must be having such a great time. I wish you luck and strength for the journey ahead, I can't wait to read more posts on your adventure.

I wish I could but touch the hem or your garment. Or bath in your aura after being in his presence.


Never thought a religious figure would be treated like a rock star. But, isn't that the way it should be?

Still hoping to get to India. If someone cancels out from the West Coast, this East Coaster will travel with our Tibetan Buddhist leader in the next several weeks.

Have to think of how to break it to my family.

Meeting the Dalai Lama.....What an awesome life you lead....WOW!!!

Meeting the Dalai Lama? You do lead such an interesting life. The interesting moments of my life have usually involved surviving house fires, city-destroying hurricanes, and being shot at by roving thugs on the street of New Orleans as I was delivering rare blood to hospitals.

Nothing as healing and inspirational as the Dalai Lama.

I've been working 8 days straight with half of that on-call as a blood courier. And my eyes feel a bit like yours. Roland

The Dalai Lama!? Amazing! Can't wait to read more!

As usual, I am in awe!
I have gone back and read all the posts I missed and I am up-to-date on all the goings on. Sad that you are not able to make it to India. When I saw the post on your travel to Asia, I quickly crossed my fingers. Anyways, you go on and have a great trip! I hope it is all that you have dreamed it would be and more.

Enjoyed all your pictures too.

I promise to be regular from now on! I know that you have been checking with Nancy on my whereabouts. Just so you need to know, I missed your posts a lots! Glad to be back! :D

Nancy wants me to tell you that she is unable to access your page. Every time she tries, the page just hangs!!

I can't tell you how glad I am to be back and interacting with you again!!! Every time I read your posts, I am on a high!!!

Even meeting Dalai Lama once is special and u got twice lucky....WOW

p.s: U look great in the pic, u r wearing a cardigan, Iowa was not hot???

p.p.s: Dont ask how I got in here.....I almost like willed the page to open;-o.

Oh wow Agnes. The dalai lama - so amazing. What little whirlwind trip. The rolling hills of farmland in the midwest just give me such peace. I am glad you both got to experience it a bit. I love the indie movie set picture:) too fun of a description.

Okay, here I was thinking wow I'm sooo lucky to be in Brasil, but look at you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went to see the DL speak in DC a couple of years ago and I scored a VIP ticket. I was like maybe 50 feet away from him and I thought that was extraordinary. However, to meet him in person, not once, but twice...you have quite a blessed life. I'm beyond delighted for you! XOXO

Wow, what an adventure. I never thought I'd read with rapt amazement about someone travelling to Des Moines!

I so love reading your adventures Agnes! Love it and how amazing to meet the Dalai Lama! Aww Worth all the fast travel for sure.
Adore you for sure xoxo

that is amazing! i look forward to hearing more about it, hopefully! loved the pics, especially the dawn pic of the baggage cart.

Loving the travel pics! Love the art. Looks like you are having a good time. Great blog. Lots to peruse. Perfect for curiosity.

you are lucky....... to Meet the Dalai Lama again.....as i recall reading the other post too.......

the last time i saw him...i mean on TV...was when he came to give his blessings to the teams who played a CRicket match in DHARAMSHALA ....which i remember you have been too.....

well.....i have never traveled so furiously from one end of the country to another ....but i'll take your word on how tough and sleepless it can be..............

have a Great Trip you Both

Nice pictures. I am much impressed and also it is a very great pictures are there which are for inspiring us for doing something.
