As a practicing Buddhist it must have been an honour to have the Dalai Lama come to stay. How did that come about?

Tibetan Foundation and another organisation were organising some talks in London and my husband was trying to organise something in Reading at that time. When he came over he stayed eight days at our house in Caversham. So the Dalai Lama was doing the talks in London and Wembley and he'd come back here and we'd be feeding him and looking after him.
