I have travelled all over China for the past 26 years. There is always something to discover in China no matter where you go. I have many friends in China and one day my friends wanted to take me to a new Temple that had just been built. It was a large round building with 4 entrances. Inside as you can see are many Buddhas below.
. The object is to walk into any door you please and either turn left or right. You then start counting Buddhas until you come to the one that matches your AGE. We all had to laugh a bit since the photo above with the chubby Buddha resembles my build very closely. I love to eat good food. I have always said that China is not only extremely interesting, it is also very fun as you never know what you will find next. Another time we were in the mountains and came upon men working and tearing down a 700 year old temple to make room for some construction. They had a small fire going and had been taking down some of the wooden parts and burning them. I rescued a wooden carved Monk about 12 inches high that had come from the temple and now have it home in a glass case with a small glass of water to keep it from deteriorating further. As I said, you never know what you will find in China and I have many stories to tell of my travels too many to ever write them all down. I hope I will be able to plan a special tour to your specific interests too. Check out my web site at www.interlakechinatours.com
