  1. the cave looks really cool so do the warrior statues

  2. and the budda

  3. What’s a Budda?

  4. Ronan, a Buddha is someone who has become enlightened. Buddhists believe in reincarnation, which means that after you die, you are reborn. If you become a Buddha, it means you no longer are reborn, but are finally at peace.

  5. ilike2forkmyself

    The Opera looks extremely elaborate.

  6. ilike2forkmyself

    Is it me, or does Sofia Church look really sort of, Russian?

  7. Bring me a piece of the Great Wall please. Nothing to large. Maybe 1′ x 1′. Perhaps with some ancient writing. If you are worried about Customs, have two Asian swallows carry it. It won’t weigh more than a full coconut.
