Today we saw some of the grandeur that typifies the ornate history of this beautiful land. We saw some of the most famous Buddhas in the world, including the Emerald Buddha (no photos allowed!) and the 48 meter long (one half a football field!) Reclining Buddha. We visited the Grand Palace, a compound of dozens of some of the most ornate and amazing architecture we've ever seen. We learned about the Buddhist priesthood and the life of a monk, and Sam even took a turn with the "robe and bowl".
