Day of Buddha
Yesterday I went back to the temples to get more photos (since the others are gone :( ! ) It ended up being a much more succesful day than the first because they were celebrating a holiday for Buddha. The way Coon Ma phrased it was the day they celebrated their god being born, enlightened, and died. There was music, ceremonies, altars, and signs all around. I even got to go up into the pagoda with D and Coon Ma. They said it doesn't happen very often.
