Meeting and interacting with monks was such an awesome experience. Not only did they explain what Buddhism is about,but they answered any questions we had for them as monks. It was so cool to get a question and answer session with two monks! After they spoke to us they encourages us to practice meditation and they walked us through it. I am the type of person who can not stay still for more than 5 minutes so it was way more difficult than I thought, but it was extremely relaxing. After this interesting session we went to Asiatique, which is a market/carnival type of area where there is plently of shops, food, and a whole lot of fun things to do. My sister and I saw a sign that said “FISH Pedicure” and did not hesitate to jump right in. The feeling is unexplainable. I am not ticklish in my feet, but the little sensation of hundreds of little fish nibbling on my toes was so much fun. I enjoyed myself and am so glad I had the chance to do it. I also found so many souvenirs to take home back to my family and can not wait for them to get them!
