Which is the monstrosity, the glacially etched mountains, or the behemoth, excessive vessel sailing beside them? I suppose thatís your call, depending upon what causes you awe.


I had just traveled in a river taxi to reach this temple. While in the river taxi, I saw dead and bloated cats in the river. I saw kids scoop drinks for this same river. I saw locals around the temple walls watching foreigners enter the garden that they themselves could not afford to enter the garden. After this, to be greeted by this gold plated statue seemed to be out of place.
