Look what I found
I have the habit of uploading pictures to my web server and then forgetting to post them. Over past few years, a fair amount of crap has accumulated in the unlinked subdirectories of ktheory. Today I was straightening up, and came across these pictures from my 1999 trip to Cape Town, South Africa for the Parliament of World Religions conference.
My friend Muhammed Afifi and me, kickin' it Islam-style in the hotel room.
Oftentimes in the evening, a low cloud pours over Table Mountain north of Cape Town. The effect is aptly nicknamed the table cloth.
At the conference it was commonplace to see Buddhists surfing the Web or talking on their cell phones. I guess it surprised me because I was expecting them to repudiate their worldly possessions and whatnot. But God knows Christians have just as many contradictions.
On another note, today I watched Law & Order again, plus an episode of ER. TNT is the best daytime station. Tomorrow I go to Wildwood because of a tangle with the law.
I ate lasagna for dinner, and shaved.
