... the bathrooms on the grounds. That was a glorious day! *DONG* The big bell starts going again. Now, the sun has set and its almost completely dark out. With head lamps and some with candle lanterns in hand, we all slowly saunter yet again back to the meditation hall for 30 more minutes of enlightening meditation. I actually quite liked the night time sessions. The four corner pillars had candles which were the only source of light and all you could hear were crickets and geckos. The ...

We all started to check and sure enough, we all had the bloodsuckers stuck to us. I had one sucking away on my ankle and found two bites on my other ankle where they had had their fill and fallen off. Dave had one between his toes!! And boy does it bleed where they were. Luckily mine weren't too bad but some of the guys looked like they had been ...
