After that we walked through the gardens, and the view was beautiful with all the mountains in the background. We went to the pagoda forest, a burial ground where you can see a lot of pagodas, the graves where the important people of the temple were buried.
After lunch we moved on to visit one of many Kung-Fu schools in the area. The school we've been too has about 2.500 students at the moment, the eldest being around 20 years old, the youngest is 2. We got a tour through school, classes, and where the foreign students train (airconditioning and soft mats instead of outside on a parkinglot in the sun).
Next stop was our hotel in Luoyang, where we would stay one night before moving on. Again. After dinner we walked around in the park in front of the hotel. It was finally warm that day, no more icy winds ^_^ There were people dancing, kids practicing kung-fu, people walking their dogs or just sitting. People do that a lot, during the day as well...just sitting. It was strange to see because no one here ever has time to just sit...:)
But it was nice to have a bit of time for ourselves after a few pretty hectic long days.
