... a dark greenish colour, presumably because polishing that thing must be a total nightmare! The surface area must be immense! By the time you got to one end the part where you started would already be tarnished again. Apparently deer are believed to be messengers of the gods in the Shinto religion (the predominant religion in Japan) and so there seemed to be packs of wild deer roaming every inch of the park surrounding the Daibutsu. Much like for cows in India, it is a crime to kill ...

Well we have had a fun day today exploring this city. Started with a very crowded bus ride but then got better and better. Saw lots of good sights, sampled heaps of different foods, bought heaps of cheap bits and pieces and had more food! Karen and kids had a rickshaw ride which was great fun. Did some calligraphy last night which was really good - we all wrote our own thing. Off on a big bike ride tomorrow so that should be fun. Love to all ...
