Happy mid autumn

Today is the mid autumn celebration and the first truly sunny day of the week. I made the most of the sun to take a walk around some of the unexplored parts of both the island and the main land. I found an outside shrine and a working temple it was very different to the monastery with large incense coils hanging from the ceiling filling the air with a heavy scent to the point of over powering at points. All the coils had messages written on them asking the buddha for something. I stayed for a while to watch some of the activities. It is a very busy place so taking pictures was a little difficult as I didn't want to upset anyone praying.
