Silly people

Today as I rode the 18 bus through Jerusalem a woman was inquiring about my travels. When I told her I had been to Guatemala she gasped and said "Weren't you afraid? Guatemala is so dangerous!?!
I reminded her that we were riding on a bus through Jerusalem.

Hey guy,
it's good to hear from you. It's seemed to me you kept on travelling after I left Casa Guatemala. Did you get back home in Pennsylvania or stayed all the way in Central America? Anyway, hope you had fun. So, if you had a gig in a Jerusalem pub, you are probably travelling with your guitar. I guess you sang Under the Bridge from Red Hot Chilie Peppers or the other song from Buena Vista Social Club we used to sing. Is Jerusalem really dangerous? News are always taking about terrorism and suicide attacks, but is that making fear among people in their everyday life? I guess the woman you talked with didn't know Guatemala as a peacefull country compare to Jerusalem. Is the region hot and humid at this time of the year?

For me, I'm back from Burkina Faso for 2 weeks and I try to keep my mind as it was down there, open and ready to explore.

So keep on posting me.

Good to hear from ya old buddy.
No under the bridge last night. I did play a song that some friends and I wrote called "Your wife is my babies mamma" and it was a big hit. Last week I played "Ay mama, que paso" from BVSC. Jerusalem is like no other city in the world and I feel totaly at peace here. You just have to be a little bit smart about where and when you go places because once in a while the poop does hit the fan. But living in fear is no way to live, at least not for me.
Ciao mon amigo.

Ha. I remind people who live in NYC that same thing. Although it's not as remote as Guatemala, and probably a little less scary than the backwoods of Tennessee, yeah... people ARE silly!
