Seat 46C... ok here...
Plane will be quite full...
Bon voyage... cu in Dubai or BKK...

My fellow traveller in the intellectual journey of my life Kenneth J. Gergen just received an award, among the many, and I had the honour to embellish even more...

Bon appetite...
The weather here at 18.30 is foggy...
So I left home and in Frankfurt Airport now...

After some credit card glitches when buying visa to Myanmar, I managed to get it in three days after now... so let's do some final packing after dinner in a greek restaurant in Langen, the usual boring grilled fish and lamb's meat to unlearn once more something I knew already... good night for later.
One thing is sure, my stance as in the picture...

Before the Vesak conference, there is a preconference May 4 on Buddhism an Brain also hosted by MahaChulaUniversity... where I have the opportunity to spawn on 'Karma and Acculturated Brain' in an attempt to moderate overemphasising reductionistic research...
