10.000 Buddhaer / 10,000 Buddhas
Og det var ikke løgn. Udenfor var der en hel del, og der var endda statuer hele vejen op langs trappen, men inde i templet var væggene helt fyldt med små Buddha-figurer, så faktisk var antallet en underdrivelse!
Yesterday, we walked to a tourist attraction very close by. You just needed to go down the mountain and up the next one..... It was the temple holding 10,000 Buddha-statues!
And they were not kidding. Outside, there were quite a few, and they even had statues along the staircase, but inside the temple, the walls were totally filled with little Buddha-figures, so actually the number was low set!
Hong Kong is filled with contrasts. In between the pretty statues, you could see the wild mountains and the orderly city.
Faktisk ville han kunne have taget nogle geniale selfies hvis han kunne have set sådan ud i virkeligheden!
We took the other staircase when going down, and THOSE statues were fun! All of them were a bit weird somehow - funny expressions, strange position, or like this guy, a very, very long arm.....
He would have been the master of selfies if he had been looking like this in real life!
Til sidst rev de husene ned i 90'erne, og nu er der så den fine park.
Vi gik utroligt meget i går. I dag er mine ben FULDSTÆNDIGT smadrede. Men hvad. Jeg kan mærke at jeg lever!
We also went to Kowloon Walled City Park - a pretty little park located in a place that first held a village, but then became this totally crowded place (the figure is a model of the houses), which was thoroughly criminal.
In the end, they tore down the houses during the 90's, and now the place holds this pretty park.
We walked a lot yesterday. Today, my legs are TOTALLY wrecked. But no worry. I feel very much that I'm alive!
