i applied for social media, but i worked in the kitchen & no day off, there is no real coordianation between the volunteer who recruit & the monastery. i arrived at the wrong time, chineese seminar, volunteers should make ourself inconspicuous, keep a low profile, we are not allowed to walk free in the garden, go anywhere, have stay in our room wich is wet, mold, i had cough.. + moskitto. at least i've learnt to cook chineese food with the kitchen staff, i had fun & made friends
The Temple was a really nice experience. All the people there are really nice and helpful, even I don't speak Mandarin they were trying to comunicate . Every day I had a new task to do and every day was a new experience. Also they let me stay for the special metitation event that they had. Thanks for all and hope see you all again.
