Tibetan Monks on 7th Avenue in New York

The Dalai Lama was in New York, in May, when I was there. We saw evidence of his presence on billboards, tv news and on the street.

The Dalai Lama was in New York for a conference, sharing his teachings at Radio City Music Hall.

The cell phone this Monk is carrying may be an older version, but it was still an interesting sight to spot a monk carrying a cell phone, walking through New York. It was one of those situations where things seem out of context, and that very aspect makes the event unusual. Unexpected and a bit out of context, but on reflection not that surprising.

After all, it's a big, big world.
