A whole lotta buddha

We recently took a hike to Changhua to see the "Great Buddha Statue", well known in Taiwan.  There's not a whole lot to the town, but it was a nice day and we enjoyed walking around.

Our destination - standing at 92m and hollow so visitors can walk inside

In the town of Changhua - some delicious snacks and a big plane?

Trees in bloom

Colors in the temple

Buddha's backside; I love the streamers

Not pictured is the path leading up to the buddha statue lined with squid vendors.  Squid prepared in any and every way you could eat it.  We didn't partake in any of it.
