I was very much looking forward to experiencing Reflexology paths. After doing our morning constitutional* in Taipei by the Tamsui River after our first night walking back to the hotel we passed through a small park called Yuquan Park where seniors and some younger people were exercising.
Again, this was so special because of the personal invitation and because banyan trees are considered sacred trees. Some even say that it was a banyan tree that Buddha awoke under, but it seems to have been a different kind of fig tree. I posted some great links on trees, mythology, and Buddhism as seen below and I will revisit them myself and do some more reading as soon as I can.
Thank you for visiting as always,
*(I have a daily morning constitutional with Mowgli in New York that was extended post Obama), most people I know have not been immune to the change and are more stressed than usual; that includes me. There will be a post about my modified practice at one point.
