Astrid and I were lucky enough to be invited to lunch at a Buddist temple today. The receptionist at the hotel who was won over by Nick bringing her oranges when she had a cold in January, visits this temple daily. She was kind enough to invite us to join her on this day as there was a holiday feast we were able to enjoy. The tables were piled high with vegetarian food and we ate elbow to elbow at a small table with nine very nice temple members. Only our host spoke English, but we smiled and laughed and shared food. It was a very memorable and tasty experience.
