          ... the shops! Their diet gets supplemented heavily by the tourists feeding them specially made deer biscuits and so they are very tame and friendly, and absolutely gorgeous! At the base of the park is yet another fabulous traditional Japanese garden. Probably the highlight (apart from the deer!) of Nara however is The Great Buddha (Daibutsu), housed in the magnificent Todai-ji Temple. The temple is still one of the largest wooden buildings in the world, despite being rebuilt twice ...

          Back in Nara, we started our day with more 'photobooth', whilst we still looked decent enough. We are now also to be known as Reakuku and Kusara because when it asked us to enter our names, we just jabbed randomly at the Japanese letters and that's what it came up with.
          For lunch we headed back to a cheap local restaurant - it was ok but again I succumbed to the cinammon sugar pizza dessert, which was unnecessary. We picked up some dessert for Mike ...

          ... around Nara. The Todaiji Temple is set within Nara Park which is also known as "Deer Park" as there are hundreds of deer living in the grounds. They are considered sacred so along the path there are stalls selling deer biscuits. Of course Fraser had to buy some and was promptly swarmed by deer following, butting and nibbling at him to try and get some of his cookies. Once we'd made our way through the deer ...

          ... not happy with Tina and screeched at her prompting her to jump away. Don't worry - I got the picture.

          At 12:30, they started blasting "Infernal Galop" from the speaker system - which was apparently the signal that the monkeys were about to be fed. Because monkeys can cancan too?
