Happy Thanksgiving for me

Today I am taking a bus from Chengdu to Le Shan (pronounced leeee Shan with the e sounding like the u in "put") to see the biggest buddha statue in the world. It's apparently 71m tall. That's pretty damn big. My book says the large toenail is 7m alone.

The ride will be 2 hours each way and I'm heading out from Xinanmen bus station.

Because I'm such a nice guy, I'll take pictures for you so that you don't have to :)

ok I looked into this fact. The one in HK is the largest "sitting" buddha in the world. The one in China is the biggest buddha altogether in the world.
