    Thanks D. It is most interesting to see what other countries Wats and temple goers look like. How about the rest of you out there in the big world? Posts and pictures please!

    Oh!!! The Buddha standing with hands crossed contemplating is my birthday, Sunday. The Buddha stood for at least seven days (depending on the source) meditating with his eyes open looking at the Bodhi tree right after his enlightenment. It is the metal statue to the right of the Monk.
