Pic For The Day - Best Shave Ever

We were sitting in Madrid, waiting on a plane to Marrakech, when this guy with the best shave ever sat down across from me. For almost an hour I tried to figure out a way to capture his fabulous-ness without him knowing. It was tricky, because he kept staring right at us. Maybe it was due to my stir-crazy kids, who had already been on one plane, and were bored stiff by the long lay-over.

Finally I got lucky:

Lama is "pretty" sure that this is NOT a shave, but a VERY precise plucking of facial hair, which is employed by Gulungan monks in Albania. This plucking of facial hair is actually performed by other monks while the 'pluckee' is in DEEP meditation. the practice is called, "Shikoni, Bruno kaloi jashtë" .. which translates to "Look, Bruno passed out!"

Gunga Gulunga,

I don't know who this "Lama" wisecracker is, but he needs to lay off of whatever meds he's taking. I think your pictures, and your journey, are inspiring, and it upsets me that this "Holy Dude" always has some smart comment to make. I wish he's just receive total consciousness and GO AWAY!

Sorry for the rant .. love the pictures.

Lama will chant for you, Todd.

Okay, I seem to have accidentally stumbled into a male-bonding moment. Are you sure he doesn't wax?

This is the start of his new beard... I think.

I know who Yo Lama and Todd are and I don't even live in L.A.! Hi and love. Next time you see each other, you must hug.

It's so much fun to follow the journey of the Redpaths around the world. Also, check out the Peace Corps site. I think Bob would make a great Country Director. They're hiring. It might be a good job for you if you're still looking for one. I think you could qualify easily with your supervising background. xxoxoxoxoxoxxxxo

I'm pretty sure that you can order that "beard stencil" online.
