It was a very special day and more than a simple Kyoto's sightseeing tour. The places you chose to visit and the order in what we saw made a special effect and became in a wonderful awakening. We enjoyed every single minute and found a special friend. I will come to Kyoto again with more time to practice "Zazen" with you.
