It’s a rainy day today here in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. For that reason, I have some time to catch up on posts, of which there are many. I’m going to show you my journey mainly through pictures. Enjoy:)
This is Nara, Japan.
The biggest temple ever.
Apparently it burned down twice. This one is one third the size of the original. That made us real happy.
He looked awfully angry at this scroll.
There’s a hole in the wooden post that’s the size of the Buddha’s nostril. If you can fit through it you’ll have good luck.
Can we do it?
I did it (barely).
George did it.
This baby did it.
These deer run all over the temple grounds. People always feed them so they’re very desensitized to people.
Lord of the Rings roots.
Deer family looking suspicious.
This dragon reminds you to wash your hands before entering the temple grounds.
Nara was really great. I went with a couple of my students and George. We had an awesome time. It’s definitely a city worth visiting and contains a lot of insight into Japan’s incredible history.
