We took one day in Vietnam to be 'adventurous' and climbed marble mountain. It's not much of climb since there's an elevator- but there are lots of caves to explore and stairs to walk. Here in Hoi An it's relatively flat except for cluster of small 'mountains' that are more like mounds.
it's pretty much little kid paradise with all sorts of nooks and crannies to explore.
this is the best picture of the day. Just looking at it reminds me how scorching this day was. We were SO hot and mack was SO over it.
I love her smile. and those chubby little cheeks.
I'm not sure who buys these giant statues at these shops. they would be impossible to get home.
Kent is such a great dad for carrying these sleeping sweaty children over the world while I snap photos and run ahead.
look at this light!!!!
this is the stairway that led to the light entering the cave.
After climbing marble mountain we set off to explore the neighborhoods surrounding the area. Everything was so colorful and bright. It made for some really amazing photos.
we found this little temple where the kids ran in and did some worship. They are all so used to temples that they know exactly what to do where ever we go!!
After wanderomg the streets of marble mountain- we took off for Lady Buddha on the other side of town. We drove up winding roads and made it to the top of the entire city of Hoi An/Da Nang.
We found the largest Buddha I've seen to date. and that's saying quite a bit considering how many buddhas we've seen!
and my other favorite buddha. I loved this one so much I bought a wood statue of him.
