Another birthday in a temple

Same as last year, but different 

Last year I spent my birthday in a temple (read about it here), and this year as well--but with a twist. The temple last year had NO internet connection; I now have internet in my room! So I have spent my birthday creating this blog, and revamping my entire "web presence." I'll share details of that later.

Why should I have internet here? Because, unlike last year's one-week stay, this year I'm going to stay for a while. I have been employed at Da Ming Temple in Yangzhou to teach Buddhism in English in the Jian Zhen (Buddhist) Academy. It means leaving my wife and friends behind in Shenzhen, but only for a while. I'll be back often (this weekend, in fact, for a month) and in a few years Lila and I will have enough money to buy a house in the Philippines (religion pays well)...
