I got an email from Jocelyn (see my previous posts about who I crashed with for 1.5 months in mongolia) letting me know that she and her boyfriend Seth would be in Chengdu in a few days and seeing where I was. Where was I? I was in Chengdu. I could not have been more excited to hear this news.
The day after she got into town we headed to Leshan, a town 2 hours away, to see the famous giant buddha there. I know, my avid followers of this blog will wonder how many famous giant buddhas can I see? Well, this one was different entirely, but yes I'm with you and enough giant buddhas already.
highlight of the day. A duck in a bag. I couldn't stop playing with him. I kept trying to feed him things (paper, my shoe…) and he would try to eat it. Jocelyn made me take a time out but the whole thing was just so funny, even the chinese people around us were laughing with (or maybe just at) me.
