(1578) It's impossible to go to Kyoto...

...and not pass from Ryoanji (龍安寺) the zen temple with the most famous "dry garden" (or "karesansui/枯山水" or "zen garden") in the world, created some time in the 17th century. For nine years I had managed the impossible but this time I gave in. And it's indeed very beautiful despite the fact that it's just rocks and gravel. Probably because of that very fact.
