England, Jan 2022

Visiting family, and Vipassana.

Contains 33 photos, the last of which were added 4 months, 2 hours, 53 minutes, and 53 seconds ago.

A bus to sunny Edinburgh, then a train (not the one I planned on, obviously, that was cancelled) south. Through snow in the north of England. Then cosy at my Mum's house. Visited Dad and Ruth too; the tradescantia cutting I gave him is thriving.

Serving at Dhamma Dipa. On a day off, I walked with others to an old ruined churche in Llanwarne. Dhamma Dipa is beautiful, and the skies were clear and blue during the day, and bright with stars and moon at night. The clouds came back as soon as the course ended. I stayed a couple of extra days anyway.

Another couple of days at Mum's, eating and working, then back home.
