Hey, I bought little monkey statues for my shelves on my rock foundation. They are wearing fez hats and reading books. Are they part of this shrine?

Aunbt KathyJul 23, 2012 11:13 AM

How wonderful!

JeanetteJul 23, 2012 11:14 AM

What a beautiful place. HEY! Maybe you should start a blog for all of us and report your adventures (even the little daily ones). I for one would LOVE that!

Norma. July 23...Jul 23, 2012 11:34 AM

Glad to heat from you and know you are sort of settled at last. The pix are great! How nice that there are places like these close to you! Keep well!

Laurie L.Jul 23, 2012 11:54 AM

Thanks for the pictures........................ Give our love to Alex, have fun !

I love that you sent these pictures! Thank you so much. The ones painted red are different from the one close to your apt. Are these pics of 2 or 3 shrines?
Exciting to see them since I have never been there. How is the food?

All these structures and half a dozen more are part of the same shrine.
