Yesterday we met up with our new Israeli friends and headed on a day trip to see Buddha. We will send a postcard to the first person who knows where in China this Buddha resides. Use your google terms wisely and it will be the first search result.
At any tourist destination there are hundreds and hundreds of people – mostly Chinese. Sometimes it feels like the appearance of us white people actually trumps the thing they’re there to see. As usual we were mobbed with requests for photos.
And sometimes the pure challenge of getting to the destination is actually more fun than the site itself. We’re getting really good on taking long bus rides, jumping in packed minivans and calmly negotiating the crazy traffic situations.
