Adventures in Tourism: Sokcho Part 2

The Giant Buddha sitting atop a mountain

This wonderful little monk, who didn't speak English came up to us and began showing us all the best places around the temple. He lead us through the woods, past 'do not enter' signs, to the little known places he enjoyed. We could see the impressions left in the dirt of long meditating monks sitting in contemplation. Taking our camera's and using the best gestures he could muster, he proudly showed us a view of this mountain top temple that no other tourist would get to see.
