Last weekend, Rich and I decided to go and see a Buddhist temple just a few stops away from Uijeongbu that his co-teacher had told him about. We were both still kind of tired from our big week of adventures with Sue and Conor but didn't want to waste a Sunday inside so thought it was worth a visit.

The temple was really very cool and easy to get to by subway followed up by a short bus ride.

The temple, which is called Hwagyesa also seems to be very accessible to foreigners with weekly meditation's and discussion's in English which we want to go to sometime soon.

The area around the temple was also very quiet and calm - despite the people and the cars and the monks were very friendly. I'm looking forward to visiting again sometime soon.
