Allan Karl was on his way around the world on his motorcycle until, last month, he had a bad fall and broke his leg rather thoroughly. In Tica Tica, Bolivia, which is in the middle of nowhere, unless you live there, and probably it still is. Very poor area, very high in the mountains, hundreds of miles on muddy roads from even bad hospitals. Anyway, Allan is a blogger par excellence and has meticulously documented the whole journey. And this is no different. Even while he's bouncing around in the back of a pickup truck with a broken leg in the rain on a dirt road in the Bolivian mountains, he somehow manages to get pictures taken, and he records the events blow by blow. Which is rather fascinating to read. I've only met Allan once, at a blogger event in L.A. He's a great guy. Anyway, his accounts of the around-the-world trip is here: worldrider.com, and his normal blog is Digital Tavern. Anyway, after some grueling days he made it back to a proper hospital in Orange County, to be put back together more professionally, which seems to be progressing well.

That tragedy on Pakistan is constantly on the worsen simply because relief components and enable fall far except what important. More enable is seriously needed given that the potential for lots of fatalities starts off to loom.
