Jammin thru Mongolia begins and wow, just a few kilometers outside town and we're in awe at the immensity of the landscape. Once the concrete gives way, the grassland takes over from horizon to horizon. It isn't that flat as we rolled up and over hills that gave us views far across the land.

Snapshot from Mongolia: Selfie with Genghis Khan

New Arai XD3 Helmet for New Riding Chapter
1 August 2014 I got a new helmet! and yes, it's just like the old one. The graphics are too flashy for me, so I got it painted. Arai make top of the line helmets and since this is my life and business now, got to go for the best. The older one is an Arai XD...

Arai make top of the line helmets and since this is my life and business now, got to go for the best. The older one is an Arai XD (1) that I bought used on eBay and it has served me wonderfully through my whole journey and then some. Thankfully I've never had to test how well it protects my head but a helmet's structure gets weak over the years and now it feels nasty inside, even after a thorough cleaning. Just imagine all the grime soaked in there! So, thanks to Josh Rhodes who brought me this new Arai XD3, again from eBay. They've already released the XD4, which I'll probably upgrade to in three years ;)

Sculptures in the desert. These are the lifeless tress of Dead Vlei in Sossusvlei, surrounded by the giant sand dunes of the Namib Desert. 

I'm slowly sorting through the photos from my ride through Namibia in early 2013. From over 5,000 photos, I'm selecting a collection of about 200. What a tough task!

Introduction
Raised in the savannahs of Zambia and the highlands of India, my formative years set the course for my being to be realized. I pursued my initial interest in mechanical engineering in the US and did cellphone product development. While enjoying the technical challenge, the gnawing inside me of seeking a greater understanding of life lead me to quit my job, sell my house and most worldly possessions and set off a multi-year motorcycle journey through Latin America and Africa in March, 2010. I'm also studying for a masters in Sustainable Development while I'm traveling and hope to get a hands-on experience of the current humanitarian needs and switch into this field at the end of this journey, focusing on water resource issues.

I'm loving life as it's thrown to me and like to live in the present with an eye on the future. I have a curious mind and like to learn especially about Astronomy and the Cosmos, Geology and the story of the Earth, Anthropology and the Origins of Humans and Philosophies of all kinds. Besides the above interests, I'm overall interested in achieving true Happiness through meeting good people; cooking and eating fresh, healthy food; sharing and listening to music (ranging from bossa nova to electronic trance); being in the outdoors with Nature; appreciating technology and design and embracing the mechanical beauty that lives with us.

I believe everyone is responsible for their lives and their actions and we do have the will to make changes for the better. I truly believe if more people in the world knew more about our true origins we would see that we are all one big family and have a shared destiny on this planet and in the cosmos. If we could shift our focus from the short-term to the long-term, many problems could be averted and general happiness would rise. I've met people from all walks of life through my motorcycle travels and given the chance people in general are good, especially if shown respect and dignity, but living in our cut-throat world changes people's priorities to thinking about self-gain, which we all must do to survive. I think the next few decades are critical in the long-term evolution of life on this planet and I'm happy to be alive at this significant point in history. What Gandhi said resonates strongly: you have to be the change you want to see in the world.
Bragging rights
Motorcycled through 33 countries from the US to India via Latin America, Europe and Africa covering 103,200 kms and cooking 56 chicken curries along the way ;) http://JamminGlobal.com
