Holy cow. They are huge. I bet they could be seen from miles away.

That's so interesting. I've seen large Buddhas before, but nothing quite so big. What's the point, I wonder. Big is better? But why would that be...since such a point of view would seem to contradict the Buddha's teachings? Religion can be so confusing!

Gigantic? Massive? Huge? Gargantuan? I don't know what word to use here, it's really incredible!
God bless you!

Gee..I'm curious as to when you began traveling? Have you done most of it on your own? Well, these are intriguing- just amazing!
To further facilitate web friendship, I decided to forward your link (The Bride) to a couple women friends..just so they can see the positive side of things! (grin)
