Monastery scenes

Pilgrims leave coins and bracelets on every ledge and tucked into unlikely spots around the building including under crucifixes.
Pilgrims who have climbed the steep mountain and come up the stairs to the monastery doze on pads in the shade.
Monastery workers with baskets search for and collect coins from around the monastery.

In the front seat of the car on the way up, Jane closed her eyes and hid behind her big hat, to shut out the scary but beautiful view.
