      ... in japan so far(in terms of scale) and apparently the very original was 1/3 bigger! Inside the temple sits the equally towering 'Great Buddha Vairocana', which at 53ft is the worlds largest bronze Buddha(even bigger than the one at Kamakura which was 44ft). All in all Nara really lived up to expectations and was a really relaxing place to spend the day! Tomorrow I head to Kobe, continuing my south eastern journey towards ...

      ... much hotter than home and I need to put on sun screen every day. I have a big tan already. The pool is the best place to be so far. Instead of cars for taxi’s there are motorbikes with passenger seats called tuktuks… There were not very many taxis in Japan because everyone took the trains.

      There are not as many dogs or cats as at home, the ones here are all skinny. Lots of people here work full days and lots of hours while the tourists are here.

      ... time than the Amtrak.

      The train we were on had a see-thru cab so I was able to watch the conductor drive us along the mountainous route. It was amazing watching him go through a 15 point checklist every time he stopped. As expected, he was very exacting.
