Big Buddha and the Po Lin Monastery
I have been behind…so far, in fact, that I totally forgot I had more photos to process from our trip to Hong Kong (from December!). Sheesh.
We took the train and then the cable car to the Po Lin Monastery and Big Buddha (Tian Tan) statue. It is the largest outdoor bronze seated Buddha, on top of the mountains just outside of Hong Kong.
It started out as a very cloudy day but when we arrived at the top of the mountain, the clouds gave way to a beautiful blue sky.
This was our favorite part of the HK vacation. With a short train ride, you are out of the craziness of the city and into mountains and wilderness.
