  Monk with mobile phone
by grets

Another very bizarre incident was inside the ground floor chapel in Utse. As we were walking around the chapel, a mobile phone started ringing. I was rather annoyed with my fellow travellers, that they couldn?t switch off their phone when in such a holy place, when I noticed a monk reaching inside his robe and bring out the latest fold-up camera phone. Unreal!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
