Next day Lewis arrived on the train and we jumped straight on for a two hour journey to a nearby city of Leshan. The reason to come here is the giant Buddha...now I have seen alot of Buddhas in the last 6 months, but this was a bit different. For example you can supposedly get 8 Chinese people of one of his toes!!! Thats how big it is and dug into the side of a cliff, the sight is pretty impressive. But what made it better was the surrounding caves, waterfalls and gardens. Amazing another nice part of China and the sky was a lot less smoggy than Xian.
The other big draw to Chengdu is the world famous panda sanctuary
The red panda, which look more like raccoons, were more active...running around!!!!
The rest of the day was a little boring, cv work....yahn..but has to be done.
And another flight out to Gullin, on route back to Hog Kong.
