Bridging The Gap Between Cultures

Visit Alice to find more players in her photo challenge, Bridging The Gap.

On the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus, there is a Korean Temple. It was built as a sign of peace between East and West. In fact, a good part of the UH@M campus is dedicated to bridging the gaps between Asian and American culture.

Here is a bit of detail from the Temple. You can see a bit more of it if you visit my Project Green Finale.

Here is the bridge one has to cross in order to enter the temple. Be certain to biggie the photo and look at the details etched on the rail supports.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Is that a dragon sitting on top of the rail support? AWESOME bridge! I bet sometimes there’s even water under it, huh?

    I don’t know why my pic didn’t load for you… everyone else has seen it! Try again!

  2. I had a similar idea for the bridging the gap thing, but didn’t get it up last night.

    Very very happy about the job and so happy that you are getting some respect and not feeling so much like Rodney Dangerfield. 🙂

  3. Wow!!! What a great way to bridge the gap between two cultures! And between two challenges too, you have found another dragon for Melli!

  4. Quilly this is awesome!! BRIDGING THE GAP between 2 cultures/races, and a gorgeous foot bridge. VERY well done, my friend.

  5. Gorgeous detail on that little bridge isn’t there. many lovely things to see there in hawaii….

  6. I enjoyed scrolling down the page and looking at your bridges. Congrats on the job and finding one that gives you both freedom and respectful colleagues. Very cool.

    I guess your Wordzzle will pop up at midnight HAWAII time, so I’ll check it out in the morning. Don’t forget to add your name to Mr. Linky.

    Oh – re the vanity wordzzle. Vanity wordzzles are from a collection I have of exercises I did in classes and for a book I never got published. I usually just pick one on Friday afternoon when I write my own wordzzle exercises, so I myself never know in advance what it will be.

  7. What an amazing feat of engineering a bridge is. I am really enjoying reading your blog and seeing all the wonderful photos. There are some really creative blogging communities out there, the photography ones especially. Good to meet you.

  8. I think the closest to this I’ve seen was a Buddhist Temple a few towns from my home town. At a time (and still today I guess) there was a large Japanese population-enough to warrant building an internment camp for them during WWII.
