I'm sorry that I haven't been more immediately responsive to your comments.
Dodgy internet is part of the problem, but mainly each day has been flat out, and there simply hasn't been the time.
Yesterday for instance started before dawn, and we didn't get back to the hotel from filming at the monastery until 7pm. Last night I literally kept falling asleep while doing the blog, and I didn't finish until after 11pm.
The blog usually takes me between an hour and an hour and a half –
I'm slow, I know…
Anyway I have a bit of time this morning before we head out.
Today we shoot at a smaller monastery on the outskirts of town – and I'll be interviewing a Buddhist monk – a scholar from the Institute of Buddhist Studies – who has some very interesting views on intuition.
Even though I didn't get to interview His Holiness the Dalai Lama (yet!), the trip to Dharamsala has been very worthwhile. It's like a different country to India – more like Tibet – and importantly for the film, it's allowed me to get a Buddhist perspective on intuition, which is quite different to Hinduism.
Anyway, now I'm going to reply to your comments. And again my apologies for my tardiness.
