We, including myself take simple little things in life for granted. How freaky and crazy is this news. Six died protecting a cyclist from gun fire and what the heck was this Spanish rider Javier Colorado trying to prove setting his route around the World through such dangerous regions… Ignorance is not bliss; watch the news once in a while and you might be better informed. He is alive today at the cost of six others…. dumazz.................................................................. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/22/us-pakistan-cyclist-idUSBREA0L0CR20140122?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews

He probably had god intentions, but there are so many frickin 'agendas' in that part of the world (Sunni, Shiite, regular old 'tribal'), so who knows. He may have been steered into a conflict zone for someone's 'agenda'. Reprisals and counter reprisals to commence shortly, of course, ad infinitum.

I try not to think about the fact that Pakistan is a nuclear weapons holder, but perhaps more of us should.

Huckleberry: I'm more of a Jungian, but if I had meant to type it as written above, I certainly would have used the lowercase 'g'.

Sometimes a typo is just a typo.

Rory Stewart made it work in January 2002 in Afghanistan, as recounted in "The Places in Between". He was walking, not riding. Different time, different place, but similar situation.

In a place with a world view so foreign to us that they murder medical workers vaccinating children against polio because they perceive that as a threat. Three cups of tea it ain't.
