Sue’s latest Word a Week’ challenge is ‘Recline’. When I see or hear that word, I immediately think of our visit to the ‘Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangklaram Ratchaworamahawihan’ temple in Bangkok. (Try saying that without your teeth in.) Better known as ‘Wat Pho’, this temple is home to the ‘Reclining Buddha’. It’s the largest Buddha in Thailand at 46 x 15 metres, and is covered from head to toe in gold leaf. The eyes and the soles of its feet are inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The statue barely fits into the space provided, so I had to ‘chop off’ his feet to get the pic. I also cropped it to get rid of all the tourists crowding around him.
Today, we fly off to New Jersey to visit our family there. Little Max, the youngest member, likes to do a bit of reclining himself. Our son sent us this selfie at the weekend.
I may be a bit scarce for a few days, so please just talk amongst yourselves until I return, and do have a great weekend. 🙂
