Brendan and I did a temple stay at Beomeosa in Busan (info). Some go looking for balance and rest. Some go looking for the meaning of life. I basically had an extreme curiousity to fill. I got that curiousity all taken care of. While the temple was stunningly beautiful...I'm going to go ahead and put the temple stay curiousity behind me. As much as I would love to post pictures of us in our little temple outfits, I'm afraid I just can't bring myself to do it. I encourage anyone to go who wants to see what everyone is talking about. However, I doubt anyone can find themselves in less than 24 hours, especially when being told the path to enlightenment through a volunteer translator. The 108 bows are nothing compared to the amount of time you spend sitting on the floor which gets surprisingly painful.
We took what we learned from our time with the monks and headed straight to the Wolfhound in Haeundae for some much needed fish and chips! We had an awesome weekend!
Almost 3 weeks left in Korea!
