Why having no plans give you the best days!!
Today was a brilliant day!! After posting about having nothing to do and no where to stay, I promptly found some accommodation for the night and hired a driver to drive me around the island for the day. I wanted to see all the sights!!
First off we went and saw a few temples. And while temples are temples, these were still pretty nice! I love how Asian temples are so vibrantly coloured and have mosaics of coloured glass and mirrors!! They absolutely gleamed in the sunshine today!
After the temples, we went and saw a petrified monk. No, not a mummified monk, a petrified monk. This thing has dried up and now just sits in a glass case. Now, before I go further, if you had to picture a petrified monk sitting in a glass case, what do you think it would be wearing? Go on, think about it. A robe, perhaps gold in colour?? What about a pair of imitation Ray Bans? Did you picture those anywhere? Well, this guy had them!! Wanna know something else? Occasionally, other monks have to come and give the monk a haircut!! That freaked me out. So I took a photo of his Ray Bans and left!
I wonder how much Ray Bans gives for this advertising!! Monks would be all over Ray Bans rip offs now!!
We found a rock in the form of a cock at our next stop. Actually, it was two! I think it it a tenuous link, but apparently this is a young mans' penis...
Proud, strong, young man penis!
and this is an old mans' penis.... (this is Grandpa)
Droopy, limp, old man penis (lying on the rock).
There was also a stone that was suppose to look like the lady bits, which is called Grandma, but I got distracted by the below!!! It was much more exciting than those rocks!! LOOK AT THE CUTE!!
I think Asia does cute like nothing else!!
This is the owner of the dog, a lovely girl named Tang! I nearly kidnapped her dog but Tang would not have a bar of it!! :)
