I've been to Warren, MI. Yep, blue collar and depressed with the gutting of the manufacturing jobs. Never knew there was a big enough Vietnamese group there to establish their own temple.
What a great picture. The contrast is just amazing. Have you visited them Brian? That's... so close to me... I can't believe I've never seen this before.
Yeah, it's literally at the end of my street. I have visited there but they didn't seem to understand why a non-Viet was there. They must have assumed I was a tourist. Smiles and nods. I asked a layperson if they needed any help painting or anything (it was during construction) and he looked at me like I was an alien, and said "no, no help." The language barrier was a big issue.Not very welcoming to non-Viet people.
@BrianI live in warren and I'm looking for a new sangha. Any recomendations?
