    Thank-you very much for everything
    My husband and I where at the Monastery on October 15th. It was closed, but the most kindest Monk came and talked to us. He then showed my husband the Monastery and serviced us lunch outside because we had not eaten. We had to leave before we got to say thank you. So l would like to say Thank-you very much for everything. Holly
