On the morning of Saturday August 23, Festival Of India's mini-motorcade managed the hills of San Francisco to arrive in a timely fashion for setting up the Sharon Meadows Hare Krishna Circus in Golden Gate Park--The same Park where Srila Prabhupada sat chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra on Hippie Hill 48 years ago. Hare Krishna.

After the festival in Hartford, Conneticut we headed to Montreal for the beginning of the Canadian Ratha-yatra and Festivals Of India. We crossed the border with just the semi truck and the smaller truck, FOI's Ford F-350, stuffed with crew members. Crossing the border went swiftly with no problems and soon afterwards we arrived at the Montreal temple for a wonderful Sunday program.
