Our retreat started today. It’s fun to see some familiar faces from retreats in Nepal and India and to meet some new people. We’ll be putting in some long hours brushing up on our teaching and presenting skills in the coming days.
Dawn, Ann and I took a boat tour to explore some of the islands yesterday. We enjoyed snorkeling, seeing monkeys and being out on the water.
Earlier in the week we rode elephants, visited a temple and went up a mountain to see a huge Buddha and watch the sun set. Besides the humidity (they are saying it’s unseasonably hot and muggy), I’m enjoying it here.
Tomorrow we will be up early to swim in the ocean as the sun rises and will be in our program through 9 pm. A couple of my Malaysian friends don’t swim, but I’ve promised to stay close at their sides.
I hope you are doing well. Sending you my best wishes! Lisa
