One of our stops yesterday on our afternoon jaunt was a fairly well known monastery, just a few km out of town. The walk to the top (done barefoot along a beautifully groomed path) was so lovely, and the breeze and shade was thoroughly appreciated. At the base of the path is a pile of bricks, and each pilgrim would carry one to the top, where they are doing a bit of building. It was such a peaceful place to have a stroll, and the view from the top of the rocks was incredible. Loka Samasta Bukino Vavatu : May All Beings Be Happy and Free.
