This week has been turned a little topsy-turvey. Seems the wat is hosting some big-to-do conference. Yesterday the place was all a-flutter as directional signs, information tables, sleeping mats, and big, window-tinted vans appeared everywhere. Our classes have been much smaller than usual, since most of the monks are attending or working at the conference. There are supposed to be over 500 monks coming to this, not to mention all of the drivers, nuns, workers, and assistants. Crazy!
