Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

The Nanzen-ji Buddhist temple complex

I then figured out how to catch the subway, making my way east to the Nanzen-ji Buddhist temple complex. Here there were more impressive wooden buildings and gorgeous gardens.

There was also an unexpected brick aqueduct. I found a cache here (although I needed the photo hint as my phone GPS isn’t the most accurate and there were lots of muggles and possible hiding places).

The existence of another cache got me heading up into the forest away from the crowds, following a path running alongside a stream past small shrines to a waterfall that is used for ceremonial washing (I think).

There was also a cemetery, and once back in the more landscaped areas, a “wishing stone”.

By the time I got back to my hotel it was 4pm and I thought I’d better have some lunch (fortunately I’d had a big breakfast and I had been drinking water to keep myself hydrated on what has been a very hot and muggy day).
