Dalai Lama Greeted By Mellencamp Wife

The exiled spiritual leader of Tibet arrived in Bloomington, Indiana Tuesday (5/11) to a reception that included Elaine Mellencamp.  The wife of John Mellencamp has been an active supported of a Tibetan-Mongolian Buddhist Clutural Center in the Bloomington area.  She accompanied the Dalai Lama on his arrival at the airport to the center.  We're guessing the 75 year-old spiritual leader does not hang-out with former Victoria's Secret runway models very often.  Elaine Irwin, who John Mellencamp married a couple of months after she posed for the cover of his 1991 album Whenever We Wanted, is no stranger to unusual settings herself.  In 2001 she drove the Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500.  The Dalai Lama will conduct two days of religious instruction on the University of indiana campus, followed by a speech Friday (5/14) in Conseco Fieldhouse.  Indiana is the first stop of his two week visit to the US.
