day two, vcu belongs

well survived the plane ride
was a short trip i thought
my wife she said i slept most of the way
well guess i did
meds worked well
did only the oral pill and didnt use the martini/olive treatment
or the bracelet but did have a ginger ale

on the ride from the airport to the apartment the driver was from
he has lived here for years
his kids are all college educated or in college or finishing high school
he pays for their school himself

interesting perspective on the war there
more people are dying there now from the fightings and air
bombings than ever died from the russian occupation there

the economy is a poppy ie heroin based economy that is spurred by
the united states and europes dependency on the drug

he doesnt like the taliban
he has inhertied a large amount of land there from his family that he
can not own because the taliban have taken it over

he wishes he could vist there but is afraid to
he works hard to make it here and support his family
their religion and beliefs make their family a tight knitted one and
supportative for each other
we need more family oriented families like this in the us

he also is afraid that when the war is all over nothing will really
change in afghanistan itself- a destroyed country will be left

intreresting start to the trip huh-a little geohistorypolitics

while we waited for my son he and his fiancee she to return from
trips and work my wife she and i sat on a street side table at a
small restaurant and
watched the people walk by (there was no obese people wonder
if its the hills), watched the electric buses drive by (how come we
cant have those in  other places-i know its the infrastructure and
we dont got no money for that stuff), and sipped on a glass of wine

was very relaxing indeed

thanks for those overhead heaters
its always bone cold here in san francisco it seems
but could easily live here

on day three a trip to the big farmers market and a trip to a garden
we saw on the pbs tv show victory garden and hopefully a mancave
basketball b12 champonship game

(note this is being published after the trip)

those sports experts sure blasted vcu before the tournament
started this year
they didnt belong, what were those tournament directors thinking,
they didnt get it right
oh yes they did
vcu to the  final 16 ?8?4
