Julie: Is the increased tensions between India and Pakistan going to effect your trip? I would give this some detailed thinking since both of these nations are nuclear powers and Pakistan is starting to pull away troops from the Agan border in case hostilities breakout. I know Kashmir is to the north but with nukes there is no north or south.

Ouch! No, I'm going tomorrow. And hoping the 2,000 miles between me and Kashmir will be enough. And hoping even more that it never happens.

Julie: have fun on your trip. i am like you as flying is the least of my worries. there has been sporadic fighting along the border and both sides seem to have their feet in concrete. As you probably know Pakistan was split away from India in the 40's. Kashmir which was largely Hindu went with India. Since that time there has been a group that has risen up in Kashmir that most are calling terriorist but the Pakistani's call Freedom Fighters who want to side with Pakistan. I assume these are Muslims. I can think of no worse type of war than a religious war. These wars seem to never have an ending and go on for thousands of years. (Northern Ireland,Yogoslavia,Israel/Palestine, India/Packistan). It still amazes me that people kill people in the name of God and in most cases the same God. Both of these nations have modern weapons of war including nuclear bombs so there is always a danger. Israel has let the Arab world know that before they will ever be overrun they will use their many nuclear weapons which will probably keep the limited was going on there unless some madman like Saddam gets the bomb. I will be interest to hear about your trip and hope you can take some pictures that you can send some of us. Best wishes for a happy and fun trip.

Dr. Z I still keep in touch with my Israeli Air Force guy who posted on our board a few times (Itai). He has been back in TelAviv for sometime. Hope you guys in New Jersey get rid of all that anthrax. I ocassionally get a package from New Jersey and Mary makes me open it outside.

Thanks for your good wishes everyone. I really appreciate your thoughts and will think of you while I'm away.

Tammie, I will let God be my wings. Thanks for reminding me, and for the lovely compliment.

John, I concur with your diagnosis of the world's tragedies (the partition of India and Pakistan caused a huge human disaster at the time and has been the cause of all the problems since). My husband just shakes his head in despair at least twice a day at 'the way human beings order their affairs'.

Dr Z, India loves my feet and my feet love India. So they'll be all right!
