In the afternoon, Heidi and I braved the heat and humidity to take a walk. (I forgot what it’s like to sweat like that.) Though we could see our destination clearly, it was a very circuitous route  over bridges and down alleys to get to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, which is a steep, uphill path lined with golden Buddhas in every imaginable pose.

We wisely decided to take a taxi back to the hotel.

Tomorrow, weather permitting, on to mainland China and Dian!

P.S. For Aunt Ellen: We went to a jade factory and I bought you a donut-shaped pendant.
