Do you speak English?
"Do you speak English?", he asked as we walked through the monastery, "Yes we do", we replied. I am trying to find the right words for my story, he told us. And we sat with him for a while, or rather man-lief did helping him with finding the right word. I walked around the impressive colourful garden taking photos, orchids of every colour, bonsai trees in many forms and sizes. Everything in the monastery was so harmonious, even the monk I noticed when a return blenden in with his spartan home.
