Tian Tan Buddha
The coolest thing about the city of Hong Kong is that you can go to the ferry terminal and get on a boat and be on a little island in half an hour. The Kong is surrounded by a lot of tiny little islands that are fascinating. One such place is Lantau island. On it is the world's largest sitting Buddha. It's over 100 feet tall. You have to walk up like 400 steps to reach the top. I parked myself not quite at the top, so I had a good angle to draw. The people mobbed me because I gave them something to look at as they were huffing and puffing up the stairs. I got over a 100 new Facebook and Instagram friends from my little show. China is full of groovy things to see, me being one of them.
