Some photos from Leshan. We took a day trip from Chengdu. It was a two hour drive and we spent about three hours there. It was a nice day trip. The main site to see in Leshan is the giant Buddha. So we saw that.
Dragon Carving in the wall.
The Buddha itself was really pretty amazing. It was carved into this cliff wall where three rivers meet. There are better pictures for scale but it was insanely large.
This was the path down to the feet of the Buddha. It was somewhat terrifying because of the steepness, the crowds and the large Chinese man goosing me in line.... Seriously, dude, not cool.
The feet of the Buddha. Pretty amazing.
Things here are good. The end of my time in Beijing is fast approaching and I am headed back to the US on the 14th of December. I have understandably mixed feelings about it. Work has been pretty busy so that has had the days moving along pretty quickly the past couple weeks. Kia and I are headed to Alaska for the holidays. We are both pretty psyched to see our families and have some relative downtime.
Hope things are well. Keep it hood.
