Big Buddha

This is one site that I never thought I'd ever see in my lifetime. It was every bit as amazing as I'd imagined, and the pictures hardly do the scene justice. Some days I'm so frustrated that I'm not a better photographer.


Big Buddha is isolated in the mountains, but I was surprised to find quite a bit of construction going on in the area. Here are some extra pictures of the area.





Maya posing with the locals. It was mighty windy at the top.

What fun and what a impressive sight. How neat for the kids to have these experiences, to broaden their horizons. Indeed, their IQ's demand it.
