    We "plan" to spend our twilight years with son Bjorn as his guests in the town place. We are moving him in from his apartment nearby, where he has lived for the last 10 years. In 2019 I built him and his sister a gym onto the back of the house, where he does his powerlifting.

    One of the photos from our backpacking trip. I like that the bridge is a fallen tree in the woods. Something particularly nice about this.

    You look more like the "Messiah" than me! Or, at least a prophet or something.

    Lovely photos.

    I thought I'd share some photos from some Buddhist temples and areas near me or that I've visited this year.

    First ones are near where I live.

    These ones are from a place called Sanxi, which is a village more known for it's traditional dragon boat festival. But just behind in the hills there's a really cool area with lots of arhats carved in the rocks. When you follow them up the hill, it takes you to a big Buddha statue at the top and there's some other statues and a small temple there. In a hill next to this, there's also a little temple that is overseen by a white Buddha statue.











    Below is from a bigger temple near me called Longquan Chan Temple, which is know for it's links with the Chan Master Baizhang Huaihai (from the Hongzhou School). His statue is in one of the photos. Apparently this was his first temple he went to as he born in the local area. I mentioned this temple in a thread about my practice (or lack of) in China.

    The photos below are from when I visited Huangmei (a town that calls itself the home of Zen), where the fourth and fifth patriarch temples are located. I decided to visit after reading 'Zen Baggage' as I realised that this place is part of the same 'city' (maybe you'd call it a prefecture) as my wife is from, Huanggang (although it's geographically a big area, so only close in China terms).

    I stayed in a hotel near the Fifth Patriarch Temple, which had a nice walk straight from the hotel on an old footpath. There were a few modern looking, new buildings as well as the older temple further up. Inside the new exbhition hall, there was a lot of information about the history of the temple.








    Unfortunately, the Fourth Patriarch Temple, was going through some reconstruction but it was really interesting to see it's pride it had in spreading Chan/Zen to other regions. There were loads of photos of foreigners on the walls (I've never seen that in a temple in China before), including Red Pine himself (quite a few times...). Due to the summer heat and having to catch a train, I didn't explore the surrounding areas of the main temple, which is supposed to be quite nice. I'm sure I'll have a chance to visit again though.
