nara- koen

yesterday we spent a day
sightseeing with our friends in nara.
we focused on nara-koen,
an amazing park that is home 
to about 1200 deer who just roam free,
eating grass and attacking tourist who
buy "deer biscuits". 
i literally had two separate deer bite me,
once on the butt and another
on my leg
 putting a small snag in the 
fabric of my only skirt...
to escape the deer attacks
we visited some of the many shrines, 
temples, and gardens that are encompassed
in this great park.
a highlight was seeing the Great Buddha statue (Daibutsu)
which is housed on the worlds largest wooden structure
these pictures don't do it justice...
