Not a place of rest.

Yesterday afternoon, we visited the Buddhist temple of Dong Hwa Sa on Palgong Mountain to see its enormous stone Buddha.

Tired, hot, and sweating from the hike up the steep hill and the long steps, we sat down on the shaded porch of a closed, unvisited temple to stretch out our legs.

A grey-clad devotee passing by yelled: "Don't sit with your legs stretched out! Cross them! This is not a place of rest!"
