Today was so amazing and so much fun. We learned kung foo which was very interesting. Wendy said the instructor likes you if he corrects you, well he must have loved me because he corrected me a lot. The whole lesson we were trying to get him to crack a smile and we got a couple smiles :)! It was so interesting to learn all the moves and we have 2 2-hour sessions tomorrow! I am a little interested in learning kung foo when I get home cause it gets you in great shape! later in the night we went to a show and it was so cool. It was on the moutain side and it was beautiful. The lights were so cool to watch and the music was very nice and slow it was so interesting to watch. Tomorrow we go to breakfast with the monks! I can't wait to learn about their culture !

On a trip with so many varied activities, it is hard to pick a first that is a favorite; I'm wondering what yours is. For me, it would be the two days you have shared with the monks, learning about their spirituality connected to the realm of physical fitness--that mind-body duality.

If you weren't fit before this trip, you certainly will be when you return with a memory bag of incredible cultural immersion that only a DSA experience could provide.

Do keep posting; I so enjoy your writing.

Breakfast with the monks! Now how often do you get that experience. I am a little jealous of all the excitment you guys are having and am longing for South Africa.
