We visited the LeShan Buddha today. It’s over 200 ft. tall and is quite old, I cannot exactly remember how old but a lot. I compare everything to 1776, and here the date’s always before then. Reading the condensed Chinese history for travelers book we have gets confusing and sometimes seems repetitive, as dynasties change over and over.

We went with a couple from the U.S. who’s been in China teaching English for over a year. We learned a lot about Chinese attitudes and perceptions from them. I left thinking Americans take a lot for granted and that the current state of the world may not exist that way forever. More on this later.
