I'd never before seen female monks. They were sitting at Granville Island, in the heart of Vancouver, taking in a show from a Comedy Juggler.
Update: As per the comment from North Burnaby's David, I may have been incorrectly using the term "female monk". I'm not sure though. According to this article on Wikipedia, such women are known as Bhikkhuni aka Buddhist Female Monks aka Buddhist Nuns. I await clarification from others.
