Miss Philippines Bianca Guidotti is not a Buddhist. But that did not stop her from paying her respects to Buddha in an altar in Hasegawa. She respects freedom of religion, and would not mind praying for additional blessings to come her way. Of course, we already know by now what part of those silent wishes were.
At any rate, she also joined the other early delegates in a revered tea ceremony which is a common practice in Japan. The fresh new practices in their culture is something that she relishes with much gusto. She is taking everything in with much anticipation and excitement.
More to come, Bianca! 🙂
