Eu devia estar a ser atacada pelos macacos nesta altura porque não me lembro disto:)))

JM said...

Se bem me lembro isto é logo no início da subida, antes do ataque dos macacos! :-)))

For some reason I find this humorous. But it's a great group of sculptures. Every religion has it's leader and every leader has his/her disciples. One problem with disciples is that they are not taught but indoctrinated. And god forbid they should question the "wisdom" of the leader.

OK, that's my rant for today! :-)

Many such peaceful reminders in a country unfortunately beset with violence and political strife... wait a minute, the same now goes for Thailand, where I live!

It seems to me that you traveled extensively in these regions Jose. What a wonderful experience this must have been.

What a gorgeous statue, peaceful looking. I wonder if there is a reason why it's under a tree.

Great photo...The re-enactment of a pivotal scene, sort of the Buddhist equivalent of Jesus on the cross, or in the manger.

If it's not a banyan tree, it at least reminds me of one.
