Over the Weekend

I spent the weekend doing an overnight in the mountains at Haeinsa, one of Korea's most famous Buddhist temples. I shadowed a monk for the two days, eating, sleeping and meditating at 3 a.m. as he did. The temple and the national park it's located in were stunning. I even got to see the stars, loads and loads of them. The only stars I get to see in Seoul are of the airplane variety. The weekend was truly incredible and getting an intimate look at temple life after hours and behind the scenes was an experience I will truly never forget.
