Williamsburg, VA. October 10, 2012; 1:30 pm.
Doors opened at William and Mary Hall at 11:30 am for the 2 pm event featuring His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, but there were already long lines of cars, busses, shuttles and people waiting to get in.
There's always alot of security at His Holiness, I gather no one is taking any chances with his enemies. Eastern chants plays in the background as the auditorium fills.
The empty chair waits, as we all do, expectantly.
