Holiday – Day 16

Boxing Day

We went to a Buddhist monastery, which was an experience I was quite disappointed with. Cameras were not allowed to be used in any of the interesting areas, as a gesture of ‘respect for Buddha’. So I didn’t even bother going into most of those areas where cameras weren’t allowed. I felt like, if my camera can’t go in, then there’s no point me going in. Bastards. To top it all off, everyone in there was trying to get money from the visitors. There were people running around with donation buckets, there were stalls where things were for sale, and arts and crafts. The entire ‘buddhist experience’ at this place left me with a foul taste in my mouth.

Luckily, however, the day wasn’t a write off, as we went to a nice beach at Wollongong. There was a beach, people, even a lighthouse. I got a few good photos, but these were the best.
