"Who Can It Be Now?" - Men at Work, 1982
This morning's walk from the bus stop into the office, here in Oxford, wasn't a normal one. There were police vans and other vehicles on standby throughout the area. And I saw a large number of Buddist monks...both male and female. (My two favorite scenes were the three female monks chatting away while drinking their take-away Starbucks and the handicapped female monk, in her wheelchair, being dragged down the street by a prissy little freshly-groomed Yorkshire terrier on a leash. I would have loved to have gotten photos of them for Lord Celery's readers, but it would have been too invasive to have done so.)
Somebody interesting must be in town, I thought.
Of course. I heard on the news last night that the Dalai Lama is in Oxford.
I'll keep a lookout for him today. But somehow I don't think I'll spot him in Marks & Spencer, my only planned destination at lunchtime.
