It's Off to See the Nunnery

The Chi Lin Nunnery was founded in the 1930s and reconstructed in the 1990s. It is quite the oasis of peacefulness in an otherwise hectic place. We went on the weekend celebrating Buddhas birthday (a.k.a. the Queen's birthday) so there were quite a few visitors. The nuns all have shaved heads, wear lose grey robes, and ear pieces. We weren't able to figure out the significance of the ear pieces unless they were to allow them to hear each other chant.

The mad mad coy . . .
