CARAVANSARY

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

Yo, simon, I only responded to give you a little crap because you need it. You actually GET IT, and you know that 'fuck yer day' means "I love you".

We're BOTH right. Can you dig it?

Interesting report on the Shigella bacteria epidemic at Nowhere. Worth consideration for us. Frankly, I'm amazed BRC has not had an epidemic yet.

That covered... back to the bazaar shenanigans!

There used to be a mountain pass between India (or Burma) and China during WW2, famous because it was an escape route for the Flying Tigers.
It was called - this isn't a joke - the Okee Dokie pass.
I went looking for it just now - because I was wondering if it was part of the Silk Road in Marco Polo's day.
Couldn't find it.
Does anyone know what it has been renamed?

No idea. But the USAF flew the route in reverse over the southern Himalayas to India at 12,000 feet, and over the northern Himalayas at 20,000 feet. It was known as....'Flying the Hump'.

Hey! there are at least 2 other camels on this page. (I'm counting the Muybridge as one, not five.)

Was there early industrial espionage to get silkworms and mulberry trees to Constantinople, or was that some book I read?
