    We were there in August! It was amazing! Was it really hot when you were there? We were in line at the top of the stairs for two hours before we got to go down the stairs and we were all soaked in sweat. It was so fun, though.

    I had to laugh at your comment about the Chinese people bombarding you for pictures. That happened to us there, too. It’s fun for a little while. lol.

    • We were there in Early december, it was rather cool. We barely had any hot weather at all in China, over two months of travel! We craved it at the time but in hindsight I think it was better being cold.

      Bet you got bombarded often, we did, that was by far the most amusing time though 😉

        Two months in China! Wow! That would have been amazing. We were there for 8 days and were soaked the entire time. Our hotel bathrooms got turned into laundry rooms so that the rest of our clothes didn’t stink from the dirty ones. haha. What did you guys do about laundry?

  2. love your blog – and great photos!

    Wow! So cool that you get to go up next to his ear, looks big enough to climb inside and have a nap! He appears to be in very good shape after 1200 years, do they have to do anything special to maintain the statue? (Especially the wooden ears?)
