  • The monastery is a tuk-tuk ride to the new can go personally went to the foot movement when it comes to Sanya. The monastery is going up because of the tea garden walk is also healing. Though a little bit because I think that a movement than a walk and walk. The monastery is a place to feel the splendor, but calm.

  • Lipton ended early in the schedule, to sit alone in a search to shut the Fu-you've found it took quite a long walk in the city for about one hour. India is also a separate, but there's nothing greatly uncomfortable walking trail signs, e.g. the atmosphere o grave. Misty day did enter into a more fantasy feel as if there is no worth in the Interior of the thing, but I'm on my way. Slowly walk up and drank a cup of tea in the Park also mango juice came down again by buying a bong.
