... the shrine. Although there were a lot of people there, the crowd was less than I anticipated making it easier to stroll around seeing the beautiful designs. In a pagoda at the base of the shrine, a woman performed a traditional dance. Mike lamented that Will would not remember the experience. I countered that at least he was having the experience.
