Six Tree Temple
We are all sick today in the hotel room. Baby G gave us her cold, and she now is suffering from what seems to be a teething fever. Poor little girl. Therefore, I am just popping in to share some snippets from our touristy day yesterday.
So there was this guy a long time ago who came across a temple in southern China. He said - dudes, this temple has six banyan trees in the courtyard. And he picked up a tablet and wrote down two characters" "six" and "banyan tree." Ever after, the temple was known as the six tree temple, or Liu Rong temple. Seriously, I did not make this up.
Chris climbed the pagoda, but acrophobic me stayed below. While we waited, Gioia attracted some attention. Here is my sneaky snapshot of the ladies crowded around.
Silly temple movie is below, and more pictures are here.
