Weather: Hot & smoggy

Today we slept in until 9am.

We were very tired and enjoyed our $75 breakfast (yummy).

After breakfast we caught a local bus to Emei Shan.  Too late to start up the mountain so we went and saw the world’s largest buddha in Leshan.

Hot & steamy and lots of stairs.

Went to get hot pot but out of luck so we ate and caught a bus back to Emei Shan.  The city is pretty at night.

Climb the mountain tomorrow.  We bought some walking sticks in preparation and gave the vendors a polaroid, they loved it!
