Travelers to Tibet may find Mani stones and Mani stone mounds almost everywhere, in monasteries, beside villages, crossing, along paths and on mountains. Mani stones (མ་ཎི་རྡོ་འབུམ།)are stone plates or rocks that are carved with the Tibetan Buddhism six-word mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, as a form of prayer in Tibetan Buddhism. The six syllabus loosely translates to "Hail to the jewel in the lotus".
[English below] Os gregos divertidos.
Já era final de tarde quando chegamos a um pequeno vilarejo praiano grego, procurando um lugar pra acampar. Passando por um barzinho a beira mar, dois gregos que cantavam e tocavam nos chamaram. Assim conhecemos Christos e Adonis, que alegraram nossa noite com conversa engraçada, musica e cervejinhas. No final acabamos montando nossa barraca ali no estacionamento do barzinho e dormimos por la mesmo. No outro dia de manhã o Christos veio cedo se despedir de nós e nos presentear com azeitonas e pão produzidos por ele mesmo. Foi divertido.
The funny Greeks.
It was late afternoon when we came to a small Greek coastal village, looking for a place to camp. Passing a little bar by the sea, two Greeks who were singing and playing called us. So we met Christos and Adonis, who brightened up our evening with funny talk, music and beer. In the end we ended up piching our tent there in the parking lot of the bar. The next morning Christos came early to say goodbye to us and give us some olives and bread he produces for himself. It was fun.
You’re cycling the endless mountains up. The whole day, up and up and up. And then, finally at the end, you’re getting your present. One breathtaking view and freedom in the purest of all forms. A moment you‘ll always remember but could never explain to somebody. Have you experienced something like this, too?
