Sitting in the Woods with Tuy Niem

Things are really low-key here right now.  There are about a dozen brothers, with everyone else supporting the retreat in Germany.  Tuy Niem left yesterday, but we made good use of the down-time.  The other day we took a pallet down to the woods and chilled for the whole morning. The real stars of these photos: the Yixing teapot and Taiwanese oolong that my Mom got me for my birthday.
