Just finished a video...... Took hours to upload and you will need to get comfortable and sit through 7+ minutes of Radioman and MoBill in India. And another video uploading right now with Khardung La pass :) You will laugh on this one....

Hey Buddy,

Usually I just PM you my comments and encouragement but my hope is through a little peer pressure from the inmates, you add in a little more of you to this journey. I really liked the recent video pieces you did with a little video diary mixed in. For the folks who haven't had the pleasure to hang out with you, they will get a better sense of the Radioman behind the camera and typing. Every post is a gift from you but when you get a chance, please inject a little More video diary. In my prayers always. The DC / NVA / SMIBs are always lurking! Come back for a visit soon.

Awesome Ride Report

Mark, Thank you for the engaging RR, I have read every post since finding this about 2 months ago while doing research for a trip to Nicaragua.
It just keeps getting better and better, and brings back wonderful memories from my days of M/C travel in Africa, especially your latest video travelling in the truck.
I had to hitchhike with my bike north of Juba, Sudan to Nairobi which took about 2 weeks, with many long days in trucks and being dropped off in the night and taking 2 days to find out where my bike was left.
Being taken hostage for an afternoon near the border of Sudan/Uganda and thinking only about what an adventure this is, no real fear, it was just incredible to be at peace with myself, which only a traveller who has got some miles under their belt knows that feeling.
Those “moments” where I was tested, created some of the strongest memories from that trip and I see that as you travel that same sense of peacefulness is creeping into your being which comes out in your writing. Thank you for re-awaking that in me as I read your reports.
I am encouraged by the community that is here on the ADV site, and I am now officially addicted to RMRTW daily updates.

Cheers,

Kiwi Canuck (Dave)

Wow, when you stated that you were going to ride India " I though why would they want to ride there?" But after seeing the photos of people and places I can see why. Stunning pictures and video, Thank You.

Great stuff!

Thanks for continuing to post such fantastic reports. I usually stop reading when RTW reports leave South America because that's where my interests are, but I can't wait for each installment of your adventure.

The kids protesting.

Thanks. This is what I saw....

Students lead mass rally, Hold nightlong prayer vigil
Phayul[Monday, June 04, 2012 14:37]
By Tendar Tsering


School students of TCV Suja sit on a nightlong prayer vigil for Tibetan martyrs at the Tsug-la Khang in Dharamshala on June3-4.
DHARAMSHALA, June 4: As the Dalai Lama’s three-day special teaching for Tibetan youths culminated yesterday with the conferment of Manjushri Empowerment (jamphel yang jenang), hundreds of Tibetan school and college students took part in peaceful rally for Tibet in the exile Tibetan headquarters of Dharamshala.

The rally was led by a group of school students from Tibetan Children’s Village School, Suja. The same group of around 160 students had earlier shaved their heads and sat on a 12-hour hunger fast in solidarity and support with the plight of people inside Tibet.

Following the rally, the students sat on a nightlong prayer service at the Tsug-la Khang temple, outside the residence of the Dalai Lama.

“We are organising the nightlong prayer service, coinciding with the 15th day of the Saka Dawa, for the lives lost in Tibet in the ongoing struggle for Tibet’s freedom,” Tsewang Thar, one of student leaders said.

Most of the children who participated in the series of campaigns, led voluntarily by the students during their summer holidays, are from Tibet.

Some of the students are also related to the young Tibetans who have self-immolated in Tibet in recent months demanding the return of the Dalai Lama from exile and freedom in Tibet.

Rinzin, 14, a young participant in the campaign said his father had been arrested by Chinese authorities in eastern Tibet. With very little information on the whereabouts and wellbeing of his father, Rinzin said he is constantly worried.

The school students had also held a painting exhibition, expressing in art, their first hand experience of living under Chinese occupation and repression.

“Not all feelings can be expressed in words, sometimes, feelings are expressed best through paintings,” one of the students had earlier told Phayul.

The ongoing fiery wave of self-immolations in Tibet has witnessed 38 Tibetans set their bodies on fire.

In the latest incidents of self-immolations, two young Tibetans had set themselves on fire in front of the Jokhang temple in the heart of the Lhasa, Tibet’s capital on Sunday. Three days later, a mother of three young children, passed away in her self-immolation protest in Zamthang eastern Tibet.
