House Warming

Well completed the construction and now needed to complete the moving in.  Involves inviting the locals and the Monks along to a blessing ceremony. Its done apparently by all people in the area when they build a new house of building. So we followed suit. Local tradition etc and everyone want sot know what you have been doing etc. Not so different to village life in Norfolk I suppose.

Wonderful day with a lot, I mean a lot, of preparation. Wanna was running around organizing the cooks, food purchases, plates, tables Monks, monks transport etc etc. Me I stood around looking hopeless and lost.  That way I did not get jobs to do....

All in all about 100 people turned up. Only 3 of those invited could not make it. Started about 6.30 am and  ends about 09.00am. Everyone gets fed and offered some drinks. Mainly soft drinks but the old boys like their rice wine... :)

Easiest way to show it to you is in slide show, unless of course you come and visit. Then you see it all first hand.
