Temple Visit

Today was the official day of Buddha's Birthday. We had heard rumors that if you went to the temples today, you could get free food and see some more celebrations. Wednesday night, we got some recommendations from one of the Korean counter teachers at our school. Armed with her information, we set out for what would turn out to be quite an adventure.

After 20 minutes of wandering around the station area looking for the bus stop, we then spent another 30 minutes waiting for our bus to come. Thankfully, it was the right bus and we made it to the temple. Despite the rain, we had a great time walking around the grounds admist even more colorful lanterns. It even turned out that getting free food wasn't a myth after all.
