Big overdue thanks to Timo this evening for adding this picture to the *insert shameless plug* Facebook group way back in October 2008! This is the Tian Tan Buddha, located on Lantau island, just a short ferry ride from Hong Kong. The Buddha was built facing north to look over and protect China, and it is huge and a fine little daytrip.
Very happy to finally feature Timo on these pages, and with the Paralypmics so fresh in the mind (see post one week ago), I have to use this resource to pay my huge respect to his brother Sascha. What are we going to do for four years until further Olympic and Paralympic action? Statues anyone?
