Just thought I would mention it. It’s a National Holiday here in the Land of the Morning Calm. We actually went to the Lotus Lantern Festival that celebrates Buddha’s birthday the other night. I took a few pictures. We might make it back to the temple for some activities again this weekend, here’s hoping!
Here are a few of my favorite pictures!
Young Buddha riding atop a baby elephant.
These women dancing with moon-like lanterns in flowing dresses paused for a picture. The whole thing was rather picture friendly.
This drummer thanked me for taking his picture!
My favorite picture, despite the blur, was of this Monk, who just make me giggle. Monks have that effect on me. They fill me with so much happiness.
