On a small stroll to visit Buckingham Fountain next to Michigan lake, right after a beautiful 3 hour service activity at a Food Depository...we stumbled upon two street musicians....And while our parking tickets were expired for our 2-15 passenger vans in the middle of downtown, we ran over to the musicians and the following unfolded...it was a great experience for the kids' second day in America.

We were coming back from a walk today outside in the beautiful Chicago weather.
There was a nice man, Bob, mowing the lawn on our way back. The kids were
asking us 'what is that?', 'what is he doing?"....Explained to them the concept of a
lawn mower...they were thrilled....the kids rarely see grass in the slum areas or
even at the Gandhi Ashram. We then asked Bob if the kids could try mowing the lawn.
He was awesome...he totally gave them the drivers seat. Here's Dharmaji mowing
lawn for the first time....yipeee!!! I also mowed :)
