Today was something different altogether. We got to see the place in a completely different light, literally and figuratively.
The first half of the day was misty and cloudy, which was good cause it eased our 5-hour cabin car trip.
Just to clarify, the actual trip was an hour long. The rest of the time, we waited.
The second half was filled with rain and the most happy sunshine I’ve seen in a while. The sunlight has magic of its own kind, and it made everything look so much more vivid and alive.
We went to visit a pagoda and a Buddhist temple in this sunshine and it was, hands down, the highlight of the day. Everything about the place made me feel safe. Like I was free to be exactly who I wanted to be, without being judged by anyone, even myself.
