Once the High Lamas have found the home and the boy they believe to be the reincarnation, the boy undergoes a series of tests to affirm the rebirth. They present a number of artifacts, only some of which belonged to the previous Dalai Lama, and if the boy chooses the items which belonged to the previous Dalai Lama, this is seen as a sign, in conjunction with all of the other indications, that the boy is the reincarnation.

Outer Drive Tour Part 1

Starting at Livernois, Neal and I cruised Outer Drive West to its end at Jefferson in Ecorse. It took a couple hours. In Detroit it is mostly filled with older homes which are kept up well. In Dearborn is the River Rouge Park. The more interesting part of the drive is taking Jefferson back to downtown. These pictures are from those few miles.

Packard Plant Tour

While scouting for his movie, Bryan and I set our sights on the Packard Plant. The past two weekends at baseball, we've seen the smoke from its fires from across the city. After riding bikes around the perimeter, we found an opening and began to explore. After 2 hours, we made it through the first floor of one of the blocks.

The Bedroom

The Closet

30,000 shoes. Some burnt, some new. Piles. Holes in the floor. Holes in the ceiling. Bryan is climing.
