I came to korea last week to visit my parents. This time i'm only staying for a little more than 3 weeks. All my dad wants to do is to take me to mountains and old temples, and i follow him around to please him -- but a short visit to Tongdo-sa was wonderful. These historical buildings built more than 1300 years ago are well-preserved although some parts were destroyed during the Japanese invasion in 1592. The main temple is designated as national treasure #144.

And afterwards I got to enjoy healthy, vegetarian food for dinner. :-)
