Back at the monastery, everyone was kung-fu fighting! Sorry, apologies to Carl Douglas and Casey Kasem for that one, but I couldn’t resist!
As it turns out, though, the novice monks at Tat Ein’s small monastery are indeed martial arts fans — having watched a few Jet Li films in their young lives — and a little spirited kung-fu poses, thankfully free from any real fighting, were the order of the day when I stopped by one afternoon in early March. Man, these kids constantly crack me up. Hey, Saing Aung, watch that arm!
