reclining buddha

My friend and fellow wanderlust, RV, is going on a hard core back-packing tour this July to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Wish I could do that, too!

This reminds me of Bangkok and here are a couple of pics from among the many things that impressed me about that country.

There are countless temples and buddhas in Bangkok but the Reclining Buddha stands out because of its sheer size, the entire sculpture is about a whole city block in length!

The other thing that impressed me about Thailand is the attention given to intricate detail in their architecture, such exquisite precision preserved through the years.
