#4 Rachael


Temple: Dainichiji

Dedication: I didn’t really know Rachael that well during uni but she stayed around in Cambridge with me and Ed after the third year. I particularly remember her punching me so hard in the arm on a night out that I could still feel it five days later. She became a good friend and the core of book club with myself and Eleanor. She’s an inspiration to me and I love going to Norfolk to see her, Roohi and the boys.

On the way here I met a man who gave me some coffee and a sweet as osettai and chatted to me for a bit. It was outside the inner sanctuary of temple 3 which was a kilometre or two down the road. He helped me with my map and pointed out a place I could stay near temple 5. So nice of him.
