The Temple of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is a foreign festival totally unheard of in Asia. It's not just Asia; it's foreign to everyone on this planet except Americans and those who pretend they're Americans.

The spirit of thanksgiving and gratitude is of course found in most cultures and religions. This morning, I stumbled upon a beautiful Buddhist temple that I didn't know existed. It's called the Temple of Thanksgiving.

The outer wall looks like the body of a dragon. This is quite a common feature in Chinese temples.
