The mountain top site has many ornate and gilded temples which are surrounded by gardens of fruit trees and exotic orchids. Monks float softly in and out of the buildings. It is a spiritual, peaceful and heavenly site. However, we always know when my family turns a corner as we hear the two boys talking loudly and incessantly, waving their hands to accompany every sound and expression. (Where is that on and off button?). I often wonder from what French side of the family they could have inherited this skill?
We were blessed by a monk and all received a white string to tie round our wrist. I had to receive mine from an attendant, as monks do not touch or communicate with women. Oh, the questions I could ask them!
