Old Friends in New Times

The Baha'i Conference registration started and when we went down today, we made new friends and renewed wonderful "old" ones! The first picture is me with Russ and Gina Garcia. Russ is one of the greatest living musicians in the world and was kind enough to write down and arrange a simple tune that came to me on a beach back in the 70's. It was set to a prayer by Baha'u'llah known as "Blessed is the Spot".
The second image is me and my dear Samoan friends Khosrow and Ruth (and another friend of theirs) who were caretakers of the Baha'i Temple in Samoa when we visited back in the 80's to help with the landscaping for the Dedication of that marvelous place. They live there still!

Here are Tahitian friends Byron and Laura Hobdy. Next image is the Telestra Center with the moon and Venus, I believe. A beautiful site that greeted us after dinner.

Ok, Ok, here is a food shot from dinner tonight. A yummy filet with local potatoes and veggies. And here is my friend Heajun and our new friend Leah -whose shop an eye 4 art features beautiful local art. Heajun and I learned a lot about Maori art and customs. Across the mall from the shop is FoodTown - where I found some saimin and fruits for midnight snacks.

A composer, too?!?! Dang, what else do you do?

Finally, some food pictures. I was getting worried there for a bit that you had given up eating. HA!

Saimin? You travel all that way and want saimin?! I guess familiarity is comforting. Besides, nothing else quite hits the spot! Yum.

sounds like you are having the time of your life!

so do they actually cook kangaroo there? Remember the scandal when Jack in the Box was serving kangaroo burgers in Hawaii?
