I love this quote. I've lived by these words - I just forgot who said them!

Hi, Yoli, I will do a Shanxi post before you left. Check it out if you have time. This hanging temple is a marvellous place, indeed!

We find that when we go into the Lake District and see that the rocks are the same rocks, the lakes are the no-change waters and the peace is all-enveloping.

Oh this monastery is amazing! I would not mind spending a few days (only a few days) there... What beautiful solitude and contemplation! But just for a few days... Besos!
(tendrías que recibir algo muy muy pronto!)

Isn't that the most wonderful place. If they ever leave, and convert it into apartments, I'll put my name down for one.
