Ajay. A few days ago I had lunch with Ajay M. Bhatt, a lawyer with the Department of Homeland Security. He is from Spartanburg, SC, and had been a student of my aunt, Ann Dobbs, when she taught English in a private secondary school there. Ann and Ajay had become great friends, and I met him once when we visited Ann in Eastman, GA, where she runs a bed and breakfast called "The Dodge Hill Inn". You don't "drop by" Eastman, so his visit attests to their friendship.

So Ajay was in Miami for a couple of weeks, where he was handling some cases in the Immigration courts not far from my office, and I got to have lunch with him. After our visit, he sent me an email with a link to his website where he has posted photos of a trip to India. He does street-clowning (I don't know if that's the right word) and the photos are from some of his performances. Now that is an unusual way to spend a vacation. Way to go, Ajay!
