The kindness of strangers

Pursuing a story today about the building of a Sikh temple on Clover Road, I made a journey far outside city limits to the Gurudwara Guru Nanak Prakash — an existing Sikh temple — to find someone to talk to.

Turns out the guys at Gurudwara have nothing to do with the proposed temple, which faces the approval or rejection of the County Planning Commission tomorrow. But I can't say they weren't helpful.

With the assistance of a translator, the temple elder, two others and a mysterious man on the phone, I traced down somebody who might eventually be able to answer some questions about the to-be-built temple. If, that is, he returns from Oregon.

Not efficient, but man, talk about friendly. They even offered me tea and lunch.
